    Take this with HUGE grain of salt. Boras is well known to exaggerate the interest in his clients to drive up the price.
    Let's play two!!!

    Perhaps this thread should be filed under "Andruw Jones Speculation"?

    ...And all of them offered him a minor league deal. Boras left that part out.

    At least one if you include Bowden's Nationals.

    Point well taken...but, in all seriousness, are we completely sure that the current group of Reds players are going to string together more wins than the Nats in 2009?

    There are certainly no guarantees, but I'd bet a lot of money that the Reds will have a better 2009. Either way, I really doubt another five-tool outfielder is going to cure the Nationals' woes.

    Similar to Goldberg over estimating the number of teams contacting Griffey, Jr.
    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...

    And nothing wrong with it either -- puffery and hype are the language of agents. When you think how much money is on the line in each one of the deals they sign, not only for the player but for themselves and their staff, it really becomes part of the job description.

    Re: 8 Teams Contact Boras About Andruw Jones

    I'd bet 8 teams have contacted him. Its not unreasonable. It doesn't mean 8 have contacted him to offer a starting job and multi year deal, but 8 have probably called asking if he'd take a minor league deal with an invite to ST.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
