I don't think this is going to result in a trade. But in the offseason I'm starting to think that the Braves trading Andruw in inevitable.

The impression I got from an article on mlb.com was that if more than one teampicked him up, then the worst team(percentage wise) would get 48 hours to work out a deal and if nothing got worked out then he would remain a brave. That didn't really make sense to me, though and I couldn't tell if that was just trades or if the waiver wire worked that way. I thought once a player was waved you didn't have to give up anyone, that he was essentially a free agent.

ESPN's Buster Olney says Andruw Jones has been claimed on waivers, though he doesn't know by which team.
This whole thing isn't much of a story. Jones can be traded to whichever team claimed him, but the only players the Braves could get in return are prospects not on the 40-man roster or players who fall to them on waivers. There's almost no way that they'd get the kind of talent they want in return for Jones in a waiver deal.

I don't see any kind of waiver wire deal going down but I definitely see him being traded to an AL team in the offseason.

If Alfonso Soriano re-ups with the Nationals I'd put alot of money on him becoming an Anaheim Angel.

I don't know, it all depends on how the Braves want to go about things. Right now I don't know if I would argue too much with prospects because lately the Veterans the Braves have gotten haven't done all that well. Mostly due to injuries. However, for a player of Andruw's caliber they better be some prospects that are ready to make an impact. Also, no one knows what is going on as far as office issues for the Braves. If the management wants to rebuild, then I see them trading for prospects. Above all, I trust Schureholz, most of his deals seems to have paid off and him and bobby Cox have been getting it done lately.

Well the Angels have an absolutely stocked farm system so they could definitely give you something worthwhile for him. But at the same time you can't expect a whole lot.

Although he's still a very good fielder, he isn't nearly what he was and he's only going to continue declining. Along with not being a great on-base guy. Though that part might not matter much to the Angels.

Well the only thing he's really lost is speed, he's still a good power hitter and a pretty good leader, from what i've heard. He's not the speedster he was a few years back, but he can still hit homeruns. He also still has a good arm.

And, in my biased opinion, he is still the best defensive centerfielder in the game.

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

If Anaheim wanted Andruw, I would ask for Ervin Santana, Chone Figgins, and a prospect. That would be a really good fit for us. Figgins plays CF and bats leadoff, Santana falls in the rotation behind Huddy and Smoltz and we pick up a prospect. Not bad at all.
