Fans have their say in Most Valuable Oriole

Center fielder Adam Jones was the most popular choice when fans were asked their selection of this year's Most Valuable Oriole


  1. Every season, various media members vote for the Most Valuable Oriole award, and Tuesday was this year's deadline to submit votes.

    Earlier today, I asked fans on Twitter who they would select for Most Valuable Oriole.

    It was obviously an unscientific poll, but among those who chose one player, center fielder Adam Jones received the most votes with 25 votes. Catcher Matt Wieters placed second with nine votes and record-setting closer Jim Johnson has seven votes.

    Right fielder Nick Markakis, shortstop J.J. Hardy, reliever Darren O'Day and even manager Buck Showalter also received votes.

    The most interesting vote? That went to five-month-old Camden Rampley, who was born on April 16, when Matt Wieters hit a huge grand slam in an extra-inning win in Chicago.

    Unfortunately though, good-luck charms can't win. In that case, I would think a certain Baltimore-native, first-year Baltimore Sun beat writer would have a shot.

    Here are some of their responses:
