Jones Doesn't Fit In Cincinnati

John Fay has an update that addresses the recent rumors suggesting newly available Andruw Jones might be headed to the Reds--in short, Fay doesn't see it happening.

As for reasons specific to the club, the Reds just picked up Willy Taveras to play center field, which is Jones' position. Taveras' status with the club makes it extremely unlikely that Jones would have a starting role, which he is apparently looking for.

More generally, Fay cites Jones' rapidly declining OPS as a reason for the Reds to stay away. Unfortunately for Jones, that reason to stay away applies for every team.
