Considering how far his stock has fallen, you would imagine Andruw Jones would leap, jump, hop/skip at the chance to prove himself in the Yankees system? Believe it or not, the New Yorkers offered him a minor league contract, and he declined it! Seriously!
Apparently Jones is as delusional as one Manny Ramirez, perhaps these spoilt, multi-millionaire, cry babies are completely immune to any talk of recessions and credit crunches, how else could they be avoiding 'work' and job offers?
In further, related news, it would appear the New York Yankees are rebuilding their 'farm' system by offering minor league contracts to washed up, over thirty year old players who hit .158 last season! The Yankees, who just bought pretty much every free agent available, will now 'boost' their 'youth system' by trying to sign anybody over thirty who hit less than .200 in '08. Rumours are Mike Lansing was seen at the Yankee spring training complex.
