An imagined conversation between Adam Jones and the pigeons in center field

Adam Jones had a couple of friends visit him in center field during the Orioles' 1-0 win against the Blue Jays on Sunday. And by friends, we mean a pair of pigeons attracted to the sunflower seed shells that Jones was spitting out. 

Though short-lived, it was a whirlwind romance. We imagine the conversation went a little something like this:

Jones: "Hey, you over there. Move over a bit will you? Good, good, right there."

Pigeons: "Coo."


Jones: "Want some of these delicious sunflower seeds? No? You sure? Why not?"

Pigeons: "Coo."


Jones: "Come on, just take the seeds. Please, take some. Please. No? Fine. I never even wanted to give you any anyway. More for me."

Pigeons: "Coo."


Jones: "Get out of here! Can't you see we don't want you anymore! Why can't you go back where you came from?! Leave us alone!"

Pigeons: "Coo."
