Got your message that you saw Ned Colleti, did you ask him how he keeps his mustache well groomed?

I still can't believe Andruw Jones is going to get essentially $18 million a year after that season he had.
I can see the Dodger faithful turning on him in June, Andruw isn't deserving of that kind of contract IMO.

the Duggers are making some good moves this offseason. We need to follow suit.

No biggie, considering the Dodgers were almost willing to drop 30-35 mill on A-Rod. Plus it isn't a 100 million dollar contract over 6-7 years. the Dodgers draw about 50,000 fans a night and Dodgers owner Uncle Frank makes a killing off it.

I think he will do well in Dodger blue and hopefully we get rid of that worthless outfielder Pierre. Jones had a shoulder problem that hampered his power ability last year, any ballplayer with shoulder pain is going to have a less than spectacular season.

Imagine an outfield with Ethier, Jones and Kemp...SICK! Thats a very solid defense, plus Jones is an ideal middle of the order bat that the Dodgers desperately need.

Couple notes from YAHOO!

Kones is a winner of 10 consecutive Gold Glove awards who has 101 career assists and led National League outfielders in putouts last year with 396. Scouts said his range appeared to decline in 2005 and 2006, but he rebounded so well that sabermatrician and fielding expert John Dewan said in the 2008 Bill James Handbook, "perhaps we should crown (Jones) 'Comeback Fielder of the Year.' "


The Dodgers scouted Jones extensively and had new batting coach Don Mattingly watch video of the power hitter before making him an offer. Mattingly and others in the organization believe Jones' problems last season are correctable.

Andruw Jones will be on the DL for an extended period of time in 2008. Bank on it.

Based on what? He hasn't played less than 153 games in his entire career other than his first. The guy stays healthy and his been consistent enough throughout his career to indicate that he will not get hurt, and that last year's numbers are likely in aberration.

Just a hunch. Much like you assert that last years number are likely an aberration, I think it's likely he's spends some time on the DL this year. He's certainly not a "young" 30.

Andruw Jones is one of the most overrated players in baseball. He was amazing on defense, but that has declined a little bit. He is still a good defender.

Offensively, though, that is where he is overrated.
He has a whopping 1 season of hitting above .277. Only 5 seasons of hitting above .270. Only 5 seasons of over 100 RBI's. Only 4 seasons of scoring 100 or more runs. Based on his numbers, to me, it seems like he will be a .260ish hitter who will hit 30-40 homeruns and drive in 95ish runs.

Do y'all think Jones was better defensively... in his prime, than Griffey Jr.?

Is this thread about the rockies? It's about Andruw "Two Tons" Jones and his battle with the mendoza line. There are plenty of other threads to bash the rockies and their suckitude

Jones did go 2-4 last night. So hopefully that's a sign....

Seems like CB24 didnt want this thread ever to be brought up again. You defended him now suck it up. I saw him play in Vegas when the Bees (Angels AAA team) played a series with the AAA Dodgers team. Furcal, Nomar and Jones were there for rehab. He blasted one over 433 feet (dead center) and looked in much better shape. Face it that the dude was not worth the contract.

Well Ned Colleti had the choice of either overpaying him or getting stuck with him for a long term contract. It's only a 2 year deal, so I could care less. Like I said earlier, Dodgers make a killing off attendance. That's why they can afford to throw around money.
