I go without net access for a few days and when I come back, Randy Johnson is on the block. He had an unhealthy, unlucky season and the MFY want to ship him out of town - NICE!
And another less publicized rumor from Will Carroll:
The Braves are in full dump mode, trying to get something for Andruw Jones, trying to find Jones’ replacement on the cheap, and working more on the bullpen.
I'm not surprised by this, but how much would a team be willing to give up for only one year of service from Andruw. It will have to be a club that thinks they are one power hitter away from a flag, have payroll flexibility and assets to trade - LAA, Dodgers, Tigers. Jones will test the market and play for the highest bidder in 2008. He has been kicking himself for not involving Scott Boras before signing his current deal with the Braves.
