Baltimore outfielder Adam Jones continued his outspoken ways during the Orioles’ just-completed series in New York.

One day after lashing out about two fans who ran onto the field at Yankee Stadium, Jones said he wasn’t buying into the hype surrounding $155 million Japanese right-hander Masahiro Tanaka.

“Why don’t you ask Tanaka about me? I’m the one who’s been over here in the major leagues for a while,” the Orioles center fielder said Tuesday, according to Newsday. “Congratulations, he did it over there. Don’t make it like he’s the dirtiest guy in the world. He was 24-0 — in Japan.”
