Wondering about the Mariners and Adam Jones...

If they're going to bring up their top hitting prospect, wouldn't it make sense to play him? If they're gonna make him ride pine in the Majors then he's better off at least playing in AAA....

It would make sense, but I think you're forgetting the level of incompetency in the Mariners' managerial and front office positions.
Using a key to gouge expletives on another's vehicle is a sign of trust and friendship.

Jones playing time should steadily increase. The Jose Guillen flap when Jones was called up made John McLaren tentative about crossing his veterans, so he wanted the kid to earn his AB's. In limited playing time Jones has been pretty good though so the veterans on the club should ease up, and with the M's trying to rest Jose Lopez more Vidro will play 2B and Ibanez can shift to DH, opening a spot for Jones in LF.

I mean it's great that Jose Vidro is hitting above .300 and all, but he brings absolutely nothing else to the table.

Ibanez has been raking ever since he's been DH part time, play Jones in the OF and DH Ibanez... it's that simple.

You don't bring up top prospects to rot on the bench.. how is that working for Brandon Wood?
