Re: Braves cut ties with Andruw Jones
Andruw's swing has been a mess for a couple of years now. He muscles up, tries to hit everything about 650 feet to left field, and ends up on his back knee.
Edit: In 2006 he was carrying around a LOT of extra weight. Seems to have worked some of that off in 2007, but there's still probably another 15-20 lbs that needs to come off.
(In other words, not exactly Ozzie Guillen's kind of guy...)
If I had to guess, I'd say he ends up out in LA with the Dodgers. There's plenty of room to roam in the OF in LA, they've got $$$ to overpay, and Raffy Furcal is out there.
I could also see Peter Angelos in Baltimore making a play. That's where Javy Lopez went, and Leo Mazzone is there. Hell, JimBo's probably all giddy to throw money his way, too. New park and all.
