During his early years with the Atlanta Braves, Andruw Jones' path to immortality seemed to be paved with gold.  Since then...it's barely been pyrite. And I'm not even talking about his dismal stint with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Most recently, after spending time with four teams over five years...dude agreed to a one-year $3.5 million contract with the Japan Pacific League's Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles.  Less than three weeks later, on Christmas morning no less, the ten-time Gold Glove winner was popped for domestic battery after allegedly choking his wife, dragging her through the garage and threatening to kill her.  Not surprisingly, Jones' wife has since filed for divorce. Which brings us to this.  According to the Thirty Mile Zone, the 35-year-old slugger, fresh off his stint in the World Baseball Classic is battling his soon-to-be-ex-wife again.  This time for custody of their son. In the divorce docs, Nicole -- who was married to Jones for 10 years -- asked for primary physical custody of their 9-year-old son AND to have the prenup voided.  Now, Andruw has fired back in his own docs ... claiming HE should get primary physical custody, and not only that ... he shouldn't have to pony up a dime in child support.  A judge has yet to rule. Now, while not nearly as important as who gets custody of young Druw is this...the five-time All-Star's massive crib outside Altanta is still on the block.  You know, if you've got five million burning a hole in your pocket. And in case you were wondering what five million can get you, don't worry...the listing has it all laid out for you in glorious CAPS and exclamation points! The ULTIMATE in LUXURY! BIGGEST, BEST and most BEAUTIFUL home in Sugarloaf Country Club. Elegantly appointed and has EVERYTHING you could want: indoor basketball court, elevator, sparkling pool/spa, million dollar views, putting green, indoor resistence pool, sauna, steam shower, indoor hot tub, double waterfall feature, batting cage, outdoor kitchen, two indoor kitchens, 3 laundry rooms, 3 master suites on main, and so much more! For the buyer who wants the BEST of everything. All joking aside, does anyone want to pool together some money?  The house, granted, I have to think it's dripping with bad karma does look pretty sick.  But who knows...maybe Jones squirreled away some of that $36 million he stole from the Dodgers under the basketball court.
