Cutch should get two. Its the only thing they haven’t tried is to give him a breather. I don’t get the people who constantly talk down on Jones, they act like 31 is ancient. The knock on him past years is he would show flashes of great ball, but then hit monster slumps (like Alverez now). This year, there really hasn’t been slump and it seems he is finally starting to hit his stride as a major leaguer. If he can improve his baserunning and defense over the winter, they should easily give him a long term deal.
