That's basically true, but there IS a reason why these guys are put on waivers. They don't have to be. Atlanta is concerned about Jones getting his 10/5 rights and becoming, basically, untradable. I believe that is going to happen some time this month. I've heard Boston wants to deal for Jones, then move him to Houston for Roy Oswalt... or, something like that. Something could happen with him if the right team claimed him.
