Andruw Jones on Waivers

ANDRUW JONES PLACED ON WAIVERS!

http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2006/08/a ... es_pl.html


I posted this on the trade rumor forum but I don't think it got the attention it deserved. No Braves fans chimmed in. This is just as big as when Manny was put on Waivers.

Erm... not it's not. Most MLB teams put a large part of their roster on waivers at this point in the season, to see if any of them clear. If the player is claimed by a team which doesn't formulate a trade for the guy, he's pulled back. Common procedure. Now, if he clears... that's a different matter.

Please. Didn't we just call this a few days ago? :-D

Everyone and their mother will be on waivers this month.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

It's not as big as anything. Because it means nothing. Everyone will be put on waivers then can be taken back an this an that. It is just a waste of time to worry about. An if the Braves even wanted to trade Jones someone like the Yanks would block that anyways.

Who could the Yankees block? The Tigers, that's it.

As you can see I said like so meaning an example. Nice attempt at being a smart a**.. Teams like the Blue Jays,White Sox,Twins,Angels should I go on?

You're missing the point of waivers though I think. I doubt the Twins block anything, because they don't want to take on the salary, even if he comes for free. Plus you don't *know* who claims a guy until it's done, so you can't say "Oh the Cards are trying to get him, I better block that."

Ever since the Pads got stuck with Myers for like $10M a few years back, teams are a lot more gun-shy about claiming guys.

(Not that I'm saying Andruw wouldn't get claimed, someone will most likely claim him. Just speaking to the general process.)

You don't have to take the player you can still block him from the other team getting him.. The Mets blocked something like 250 players one year to block them from other teams...

It's theoretically possible you could end up having to take the player and his salary, if the waiving team lets you have the player and declines to pull him back. That's why mediocre guys with bad contracts can usually pass through, whilst anyone of value gets claimed.
