Andruw Jones Expects to Start and Have Big Season Next Year

If Andruw Jones hasn’t given us anything for his $18 million salary this season, at least he’s provided us with plenty of laughs. That seems to be the continuing trend with Mr. Jones, who recently spoke with the LA Times and provided some needless-to-say humorous answers. As passed along by commenter Anders(on) Varejao, who no doubt is in heaven right now with the Dodgers in the NLCS and the Lakers beginning pre-season games, according to Jones:

“I had a bad season and a terrible season back-to-back,” Jones said. “I have to have a great season and show people I have baseball left in me.”
..
Jones said he expects to be the everyday center fielder next season.

“I’m an everyday guy or I need to move out,” he said.

You can feast on that for a second. Another point is something my Uncle raised when we last spoke: Where are Andruw Jones and Brad Penny, and why aren’t they in the dugout cheering on the team? They’re still part of the team, aren’t they? Do they really need to be away to rehab their injuries? I would figure that they could still find it in themselves to support the squad, but that’s just me. As for Andruw, I assume he’ll start the season with the job; it will be up to him to perform well enough to keep it.

UPDATE: Ben Maller tells us exactly what Brad Penny’s been up to — partying it up in Las Vegas.

    Andruw Jones probably believes in Santa Claus and the Eastern Bunny.

    If you believe that Andruw will have a great year, I suggest you buy some Florida swampland or a certain bridge which connects Manhattan and Brooklyn. In fact, I’m sure the Dodgers will be happy to trade him to any sucker team and eat half of his contract for next season. I

    I’ll be sure to move him up my fantasy baseball draft board. Last offseason I traded Jones and Pat Neshek to a guy desperate for homers for Victorino and Lidge. Turned out alright.

    Damn, Spin. Now if you told me you had Lidge this year, then I’d be impressed.
