MLBTradeRumors.com and espn.com are reporting that the dodgers would listen to offers for Andruw Joners and Jaun Pierre.

If I'm the reds I think I would see if the dodgers would pay a portion of the 2 year/36 million dollar contract he got at the beginning of the season and deal them David Weathers or Jeremy Affeldt and a mid level prospect.

Granted Jones hasn't had the numbers he once had.. But he's got power, one of baseballs best defeners, and I think if LA ate some money it would be a good gamble.

I've seen him hit on my MLB package quite a bit. He's beyond done. He couldn't hit AA pitching right now.

Jones has an OPS+ of 32. Stay far away from that one.

we've already got a part time center fielder (patterson) that can't hit and at a much cheaper price. no thanks.

How can you fall off a cliff like that? I would explore and (hopefully rule out) the possibility of a serious illness.

I wonder if Cesar Cedeno is still available?

Dodgers would have to pay about 28 million of the 22 million he is owed before I'd be interested.

If not, I hear Mike Vail and Larry Biittner are available through free-agency.

Next year, having a RHH CF would be nice. But the Dodgers would have to pick up almost all of the $18 million for 2009 and not want much in return. No question the Dodgers have a glut of outfielders now with Manny, Kemp, Ethier, Pierre and Jones. They are probably desperate to get rid of Jones and I think the Reds should at least inquire.

And I know he's all but done. But maybe there is a good year left in him -- he's not that old.

He's about done, a reclamation project should not cost 18million.

I'd rather have Pierre (especially if you could get the Dodgers to eat some of his salary). He's not great or anything, but he's better than the current options.

No thanks. Andruw looks done.

Imagine Brandon Phillips' inability to hit low and outside breaking stuff -- except everywhere. That's Jones these days.

Andrew Jones is the player that people think Dunn is.

Andruw Jones would turn Corey Patterson into a fan favorite.

The D'backs started a lefty today and the Dodgers still started Pierre in CF. What's that say about their confidance in Jones?

Two of the biggest mistake contracts in recient baseball history and they are willing to listen to offers?

Wow.

Next you'll tell me the Reds are willing to listen to offers for Bako and Patterson.
