I just grabbed him for Bruce who was pissing me off (dont worry its a redraft league) the Rangers have interest in Halladay and Jones and a few prospects may look good for him, I see the Rangers giving him more at bats regardless of Davis going down, so they could shop him at least he is hitting slightly better than Sosa did in his last season at Texas.

I can't believe the lack of responses to this thread.

Surely, this has never been done before and needs much more attention. Can someone with access to the internet check to see if anyone has ever even come close to 3 HRs in one game? Like 2 HRs and a long fly ball?

ps - little league doesn't count.

He sucked in his rookie year last year, should I even be paying attention to this guy?

Also, to the op, its Andrew.

No, stevelabny, op was right, it's ANDRUW Jones.

The same Andruw Jones who blew chunks for the Dodgers last year. He's doing well in Texas this year? That's nice. Wonder how long he'll actually get everyday ABs. I'll pass.

and the Same Andruw who hit 51 for the Braves less than 2.5 years ago. He probably won't get everyday ABs, but he'll get more than he's been getting while Cruz is on the mend and Davis is regrouping. I'll take a flier on him (in one league anyway).

More thoughts from the Ranger blog about Andruw...

I'm leaning toward no at this point. (And I didn't think I'd be saying that at the beginning of the season. I figured if he showed something, he would certainly be dealt at the deadline.)

Andruw Jones hit his 12th, 13th and 14th homers of the season on Wednesday. He has five homers already in July and is heating up.

Jones (shown to the right from last night in this AP photo) isn't a high average guy, batting just .250. But he has shown some nice power and is providing some protection in the cleanup spot for Josh Hamilton, who bats just in front of him. Jones is also earning more playing time because of how good his swing looks and his results (started 5 of the last 6). Clearly, this is not the same guy that struggled with the Dodgers last season.

So let's say Jones' hot streak continues and July becomes his best month of the season. If he's batting .265 or so on the season and has close to 20 homers and 45 or so RBIs, would a team like to have that bat for the stretch drive? Sure tgey would. Could the Rangers trade Jones, who has an incentive-based contract that is a nice price, and get a bullpen piece back? Maybe. The Rangers do have depth in the outfield and could afford to move one of those players.

But should they not even consider dealing Jones? His right-handed bat sure could come in handy as the Rangers attempt to contend in the second half of the season.

My take: I'd always listen to offers. But it would have to be a great deal, one that really filled a hole (like a nice bullpen piece, for instance) for me to consider it. One of the advantages to signing Jones was that if he had a good first half, it would give the club some options at the deadline. Now, though, they are in contention and should be at the deadline, so they can get very picky and only trade Jones if they feel like it's an offer too good to pass up.

At this point, I think I'd hang on to Jones. He's protecting Hamilton in cleanup and has the experience of knowing what it's like to be in a pennant race thanks to all of his years in Altanta. That could prove valuable down the stretch.

I know the Rangers are interested in Halladay, Jones maybe able to help them land him, the jays like to grab over the hill power hitters in their DH spot

can someone explain comedy to the guys who are telling me who Andruw Jones is?

viewtopic.php?t=371401&hilit=in+one+game

is the link to the most common version, does the original still exist?

cafe history lesson: nick markakis hit 3 hrs in one game a few years back, someone thought it was the first time ever, mass hilarity and 185 page thread ensued.

sheesh. my blurb says ive been on this site forever, give me a little credit.
