mr. jones and me, we're gonna be big stars

well, not me. but maybe mr. jones. mitch jones, that is. although, as a 31 year-old rookie he is just happy to be playing in the big leagues, i bet.

jones was called up to the dodgers last week. it wasn't his first trip to the majors - he was called up by the joe torre-led yankees in 2006 - but he did make his first appearance in a game, pinch hitting for ronald belisario. alas, mr. jones struck out. but, the next night, he pinch hit for guillermo mota and singled for his first major league hit.

in honor of his appearance in the show, here is his 2009 goose joak original card
here's to you, mr. jones!
