There isn't a manager that Adam Jones would rather play for than Buck Showalter, but Orioles center fielder acknowledged "mistake" of not bringing closer Zach Britton into wild-card game. "With Showalter, you know that ain't going to happen again," Jones said from David Ortiz charity golf tournament. "He made a mistake once. It'll never happen again."
