While playing three consecutive seasons (1999-2001) and part of a fourth (2005) with Jordan, Jones concedes that he often arrived at the park, took a few swings, jogged a coupled times in the outfield and deemed himself ready to play. Thus, he at least had some understanding about why Jordan recently questioned his dedication to preparation during a recent interview with MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM.

“I think at some point when you start getting older, you really have to do the extra things,” Jordan recently said. “You’ve got to get in that whirlpool, you’ve got to stretch, and really work hard to keep your flexibility before you get out there on the field. And I’m not sure if he’s dedicating himself to doing that. He’s so used to — you know, I played with him so long — just sitting around and waiting for the game, and take a couple jogs and go play. But as you get older, you know, you cannot do that. You’ve gotta go the extra mile to be ready to play.”
