Andruw Jones is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game because of allergies.

A direct result of him dispersing so much pollen with his swings lately. Juan Pierre is getting a start tonight.
:-b

That's excellent. :-D

Take some Claritin Andruw, and stop being such a baby. Besides, where is there pollen in LA? It's all traffic, no trees!

In all seriousness, what do you expect his numbers to look like this year? Even in last years "down year," he still had 26 jacks and 94 rbis. He's being dropped in alot of leagues, and i am kind of considering taking a flyer on him.

He's declining pretty badly but he is one of those guys who has always been mega-streaky, and if he hits 1 HR it often means 7-8 more are on the way in the next month. I'd guess that'll he'll finish at .255-25 HR-88 RBI-82 R and be a very forgettable player. I'd wait until he starts showing some sign of life at the plate and then maybe start him for a week or two to catch the upswing. As soon as he gives you a bad week, bench or drop him, b/c he might be gone for the next like 6 weeks after that.

That is an incredibly generous line for A. Jones. I agree with you that he has been historically streaky. But that was then, and this is now....he is easily 20-30 pounds heavier than he was in his prime and that extra weight is definitely hurting his productivity.

I think he'll be around .230, 20 HRs, 70 RBI, 60 Rs.

The Dodgers would be better off benching him and letting Pierre/Kemp/Ethier play everyday.

I'm a Braves fan who thinks that this comment is 100% accurate.

At least he smiles when he strikes out... because that's what you want to see, right?

Well the good news is that he should start losing weight from all the walking he's been doing back to the dugout

I would lay off the Claritin, the side effects are nausea, vomitting, dizziness, and not hitting the ball. :-t

Hey, wait a minute... perhaps if he was dizzy, he might be more likely to actually make contact with the ball!

In fact, let's take this further. Someone give the guy Viagra. Perhaps it will result in priapism? Heavens knows, the wood he is using now ain't workin'. And the average ballgame lasts less than four hours. It's the perfect plan.

I need to get a life.
