Your browser does not support iframes.Adam Jones can hit like an All-Star, but his multi-tasking skills might need some work. The Orioles center fielder was seen blowing a bubble with his gum while trying to track a fly ball off the bat of Derek Jeter during Game 3 of the ALDS between the Yankees and Orioles on Wednesday.Jones got a bad jump on the ball and did not start going back for it immediately. Not only that, but the bubble-blowing gave off the appearance that he wasn’t giving max effort. The ball ended up going over his head for a run-scoring triple to tie the game at one. With the Yankees tying the game in the 9th on Raul Ibanez’s pinch-hit solo home run and losing on his homer in the 12th, there is little doubt that play turned out to be costly. Had he caught it, that would have ended the inning.
