SI.com’s Jon Heyman reports once an All-Star outfielder, Andruw Jones, has shot down an offer the New York Yankees made to him.
It was for a minor league deal. Apparently, he thinks he is too good for that. Then again, Scott Boras is his agent.
Well, Jones is not the same Jones who once tormented the New York Mets back in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. This baseball player is merely a shell of his old self. Nothing more.
There were rumors early in the offseason the New York Mets might be interested. I laughed so hard I thought my ribs would explode.
It will take the greatest hitting coach of all time to bring him back to form. We have not even heard what type of shape Jones is in.
