The Daily News is reporting that the Yankees “have had recent internal discussions about the Cubs’ Jacque Jones.” (Hat tip to Bronx Banter.)
Then again, this time last year we also heard about a deal that was coming. This story could be just a ‘Tis the season thing.
The strange part about the interest in Jones is that he’s under contract through 2008. You know Matsui will be back in the OF next year with Damon. Does the interest in Jones mean that Sheffield is not coming back? Does it mean that Melky does not get a shot at RF in 2007? If this trade does happen, it starts a whole slew of questions towards the future.
