    Thought on Adruw Jones as a Red?

    Per MLBTR: http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/cincin...eds/index.html

    Was a better bargain than Andruw Jones signed this winter? The White Sox added him on a one-year deal worth $500K, and all he's given them so far is a batting line of .260/.360/.604......

    ....Cincinnati has seen Drew Stubbs struggle in center field so far; he's hitting just .196/.283/.321. It shouldn't be hard to convince Dusty Baker to play the veteran Jones over Stubbs, either. It's not clear that Jones is still an every day center fielder, but Chicago has already played him there four times in 2010.

    No thanks, he's not a CF anymore, Chicago also played Jr. in CF after they got him from us. I wouldn't count on an aging player to hold up those kind of numbers through out a whole season anyway.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    5% chance I'd consider it at the deadline.

    I beat the drum for Jones as our leftfielder all offseason. I look smart right now but will probably look dumb by the end of the year:
    Hoping for another Reds October

    Wouldn't mind him as a right-handed power bat off the bench, but not as an everyday player.

    I'd rather go for Alex Rios if he's available
