ANDRUW JONES RUMORS & GOSSIP

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, and there’s nothing...

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.

Andruw Jones: From Phenom to Journeyman to Valuable, Underrated Specialist

It’s only now, 4 years later, that I feel comfortable admitting something that I don’t very often–that I was dead wrong. Andruw Jones was once a...

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 in "Inherit...

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...
