    Andruw Jones Placed On Waivers???

    MLBTradeRumors.com:

    Rob Bradford of Massachusett's Eagle-Tribune apparently writes that Andruw Jones has been placed on waivers by the Braves. I discovered this via Buster Olney's blog, but I can't find any online account of Bradford's article. Said Olney:

    "In any event, I seriously doubt Jones will be playing for anybody but the Braves, despite the fact that in the next week, he'll earn the 10-and-5 right to veto any trade. But we'll soon know if anybody has placed a claim, and whether the Braves are willing to discuss a trade."

    Jones makes $13.5MM next season in the last year of his contract. He'll turn 30 in the beginning of the '07 season. Andruw's .350 OBP and .514 SLG are right in line with career norms. Baseball Prospectus expects him to remain at this level until about 2009. Remember, National League teams would get the first crack at Jones if more than one club puts in a claim. I could see the Cardinals and Astros putting in claims. If the Braves can't make a deal with the team that claimed Jones, they can always just pull him back.
    What could the Reds offer for him?

    Edwin Encarnacion, Chris Denorfia (Alone should make this deal happen), Calvin Medlock, Tyler Pelland?

    Line-up:

    Freel 2B
    Phillips SS
    Dunn LF
    Griffey RF
    Jones CF
    Hatteberg 1B
    Aurilia 3B
    Ross C

    I don't know why writers make something out of nothing in this case.

    Every single player in the Major Leagues is put on waivers on August 1st.

    No way would I offer Encarnacion for him. But if they would take the other three for him and Cast would pay the contract, I could live with it.

    Besides, he is one of 100's of players on waivers this week and the next couple. This is a nonstory.

    Technically it's supposed to be confidential. So there's no official published lists. A few names always seem to leak out.

    I doubt Andruw Jones would be on the Reds. But IMO, he's one of the few players Junior would move over to Right Field for.

    Yeah. If they found out Andruw Jones was NOT placed on waivers in August, that would be newsworthy.

    I remember that lots of players get placed on waivers. Here's a little info:

    By the time August rolls around, at least half of all major leaguers have been put on waivers. The ones who’ve cleared waivers—in other words, not claimed by any team—are eligible to be traded after July 31. Everyone else has to remain with their current teams for the rest of the season.

    Actually, technically thats not true.

    Each team is limited to 7 players per day.

    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    I've always wished that they'd release the names of players that clear waivers completely and those that do not. I've never seen what harm that would cause, especially if players already understand that everyone will go on waivers

    I don't blame the fans if the sportswriters can't figure it out.

    I'd venture to say that most people don't know all the ins and outs. I never knew about the waiver-wire thing until I started visiting this board.
