After just being reported in the Minneapolis paper two days ago, the Jacque Jones rumor is making it to the mainstream with an AP story. He’s still not really a right fielder even if he played there down the stretch. I may have mentioned Brian Jordan as a comp before, but Michael Tucker might be a better one; Jones hits lefty, has medium range power, can’t hit lefthanded pitching, runs well but doesn’t have a right field arm, and would be a better fit in center than a corner.
The article also mentions that the Braves might be ready to sign Millwood, but Scott Boras is being megalomaniacal as usual and wants a five to seven year deal. He’ll get three, and like it. He’s turned down three years and $30 million from the Phillies, but I expect that’s about what he’ll get from whomever he signs with.
