Will Andruw Take One Year?

According to Scott Boras, his client Andruw Jones will not be taking a one-year deal to rebuild his value.  Boras cites Jones’ home run total, RBI total, and Gold Gloves as evidence that he deserves a marquee contract.  That might work if it were 1990 and OBP, SLG, and better fielding metrics weren’t standard.  Is Boras losing his touch?

Boras said the same thing a couple of months ago: "I wouldn’t even consider a one-year contract with Andruw Jones."  This was a few days after Andruw admitted he’d listen to any offer.  Crasnick’s article (linked in the first post) indicates that only the Nationals have expressed interest in him so far.
