Chris Davis had the monster year in 2013. This year, it's Nelson Cruz producing the prodigious power numbers. And we love those guys. However, in many ways they've been overshadowing Adam Jones, who looks like he's on his way to his third straight 30-plus home run season. Yeah, he lost track of the number of outs in Sunday's bad loss to the A's—not that it would've mattered in the outcome of that game—but he's undoubtedly one of the game's top center fielders. He's also one of those rare players that's just fun to watch, too. We like his verve.

Stud of the Week for July 14-20:
Adam Jones

The line:
Jones went for 2-4, with a home run, five RBIs, and two stolen bases in the O's win over Oakland A's Saturday.

Studliest moment:
After a heartbreaking loss in the bottom of the 9th inning Friday, Jones's three-run shot in the first inning sent a message that O's were ready to put that behind them and bounce back.

The clincher:

After representing the O's at the All-Star game, he tied his career-high with five RBIs in one game while becoming the first Oriole to drive in five runs and steal multiple bases in the same game.
