Andruw Jones affected by "allergies"

"Allergies have been killing me," Jones said. "My body is achy. This time (of year), it always comes in."


"I just said, `Whatever you want to do, if you want to give me a day to just relax,"' Jones said. "The last three days, I haven't felt good. I have felt good at the plate, but sometimes, even when you get it going, you need to be patient because guys aren't going to give you pitches to hit. You just need to be ready and stay aggressive, but not lose your patience about getting the right pitch."


I don't want to sound cruel if he's really in pain, but it sounds like a desperate man looking for excuses. :-t :-t :-t

The first thought that popped in my head when I saw this title was, to what, hitting the ball?

Props for beating me to that comment!

I think he's less affected by allergies and more affected by the fact that he sucks at baseball.

If only medical science had progressed to the point where we could produce antihistamines. That would free Andruw from the shackles of his allergies. Curse you, science!!!

Apparently they're hiding his antihistamines inside jelly donuts. ;-7
