Andruw Jones discussion

Evan Grant walks through the factors involved in keeping Andruw Jones on the 25 man roster.  While I agree that Jones either is the starting CF'er or gone, I don't think Frank Catalanotto's contract is as big a factor in the decision as Grant seems to...he's a sunk cost, and I think the front office realizes that.  If he's a viable 25th man on the roster who can pinch hit late in the game for Vizquel or Andrus and occasionally DH or play first base, then fine.  If the roster is better with someone else in that spot, I don't think the fact that he's owed $6 million is going to be that big an issue.
