MLB rumors: Andruw Jones drawing interest in comeback attempt

Once a household name when he patrolled center field in Atlanta, Andruw Jones fell off quickly in his last few years in the Major Leagues -- so much so that he fled to Japan to get a contract for 2013. Now, after hitting .243./391/.454 for the Rakuten Golden Eagles, Jones has drawn some interest from Major League teams although he could very easily remain in Japan says Chris Cotillo...

With his Christmas arrest, Andruw Jones re-establishes the rules of scandal: When they mess up, they’re always “ex-Yankees.”

Andruw Jones -- who played 12 seasons with the Atlanta Braves, hit most of his 400 home runs in Atlanta, won his Gold Gloves in Atlanta, lives in Atlanta, and was arrested in Atlanta on Christmas Day -- of course, is identified in news accounts as an "ex-Yankee." Listen: I don't mean to make fun of Andruw's arrest. He was charged in a domestic violence dispute,...

Yankeetorial: Andruw Jones is the new Gary Ward

In 1987, the Yankees - almost halfway through the Great 13-Year Barf - signed slugging LF lugnut  Gary Ward. He started the season molten hot and through early June was being touted by the Yankee propaganda mills for the all-star team. For three months, you couldn't watch or listen to a Yankee game without hearing someone congratulate the team brain trust for signing Gary...

Yankeetorial: I'm getting tired of Andruw Jones

I hate to say this, because last year he blossomed into a pleasant surprise, and I came to like that goofy, yolta-dolta, "gee-wilikers-Mr.-Wizard!" smile. He seems to be liked, a decent human being, a calming presence, a salty old vet. Several winters ago, I wrote a series of compelling and emotionally draining posts - often compared to Spencer Tracy's arguments...

Andruw Jones plays catch with guy in stands

Rather than go with the traditional routine of warming up with a teammate between innings on Monday night, Yankees outfielder Andruw Jones decided to have a catch with a fan. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a player do this, but I’m surprised we don’t see it more often. It seems like a simple enough way to improve the fan experience without players having to put much...

New York Yankees Hot Stove: Thank God We Did Not Lose Andruw Jones

Well, it looks like the New York Yankees are ended 2011 on a positive note, as CBS Jon Heyman tweeted that GM Brain Cashman finally re-sign 10-time Gold Glove winner Andruw Jones. Jones is not the five-time All-Star he once was, but he is well worth the $2 million bucks plus another $1.4 million in incentives the Yankees just gave him for another season. Jones is only 34-years...
