Andruw Jones Will Be the Yankees’ Fourth Outfielder

His name's been tossed around for a while, and now the Yankees have reached an agreement with Andruw Jones — a one-year, $2 million deal, with another $1.2 million in incentives. Was Watching points out that the signing comes a year after Brian Cashman signed Randy Winn for comparable money — a move we never quite understood. This one makes a bit more sense: It's relatively low-risk, and though Jones is nowhere near the player he once was, he can play all three outfield positions, hit for some power, and posted a .931 OPS against lefties last year. So here now is the question: Which would more thoroughly blow your mind? The knowledge, in 1996, that the Yankees would one day sign Jones, or the knowledge, in 2003, that Mark Prior would one day be a part of the organization? [NYP]
