Adam Jones didn't mince words about the two fans who ran onto the field at Yankee Stadium during the Baltimore Orioles' 14-5 win on Tuesday.

JonesI think it's idiotic for people to run on the field and I think the punishment needs to be a lot harsher. And they should let us have a shot to kick them with our metal spikes on, because it's stupid.

In fact, the Baltimore center fielder voiced his feelings directly to the offenders as they were taken away.

"I let them know how I felt, obviously a lot of choice words because I think it's idiotic for people to run on the field and I think the punishment needs to be a lot harsher," Jones said. "And they should let us have a shot to kick them with our metal spikes on because it's stupid.

"You look like a [idiot] when you run on the field. We don't go to any other events. We don't go to other sporting events and do that to their jobs, but they come to ours and do that. I get it, you're drunk and you want to be on 'SportsCenter.' Your [butt] is going to jail with a fine, and you might not be allowed to come back to the ballpark."

The two fans entered the field in the bottom of the eighth inning from stands on the third-base line and ran into the outfield before being tackled by security. One of the fans even tried hiding behind Orioles shortstop Ryan Flaherty.

Jones didn't find any of the shenanigans funny.

"I remember a couple of years ago, one dude broke his ankle in Baltimore," Jones said. "I was laughing at him. I wish he shattered his femur because it's stupid. It's just plain old stupid. Anybody who does it, I wish the cops tase the living [crap] out of them. I wish that."
