Andruw Jones Throws in the Towel, Cries into Pillow

What a long, depressing year it's been for Dodgers outfielder Andruw Jones. First, his old hometown newspaper printed a piece in the preseason saying that Andruw missed Atlanta like a hausfrau on a diet misses cake. Then he starts the first month and a half of the season hitting .167 with just two ding-dongs and 7 RBI. The AJC throws more salt in the wound with another piece about how Andruw misses his family and plantains.

To add injury to sadness, he's then sidelined for a coupla months with torn knee cartilage, only to be replaced in the outfield by Manny Ramirez when he comes back from a rehab stint in Vegas where he actually played first base for the first time in his life.

So what's a guy to do? How about write off the entire year like the sad little emo boy that he is? Does that work?

"If the team needed me and I was the only one who could be out there, I would wrap it up and play," said Jones, who cut short the first of his two rehab assignments to step in for an injured Juan Pierre in early July. "In this situation, we have other guys who have been getting the job done. I'll try not to be in their way."

Yes, Andruw. The fun has been over for quite a long time.

That poor no baseball hitting bastard.

/EATS ENTIRE CARE PACKAGE WITH MONTH"S SUPPLY OF PLANTAINS, TURNS UP ELLIOT SMITH

I would say there's some kind of WoW celebrity commenter curse, but Chipper's hittin' .400, duders.

Oh, he missed a game with allergies. Then injured his knee during infield practice? And I never got him that Field & Stream jalapeno glaze recipe, because it went out with the recycling?

Oh...um...erm...this is awkward.

Andruw Jones enjoys to cry into pillows.

SPEAK FOR THEMSELFS FREEZY. I WENT TO COCACOLA.COM AND ENTERED THE 12 DIGIT CODE IN MY COCA COLA CAP AND GOT A FREE BRAND NEW COCA COLA AND THAT ONE HAD A CODE UNDER THE CAP TOO.

BUT I DIDN"T GO TO COCACOLA.COM AND ENTER IT YET.

$18M a year will buy plenty of tissues, 'Druw

Do the Coke bubbles ever get trapped in your side-stache, Todd?

Hey Andruw, remember that time you didn't hustle after a fly ball and Bobby Cox pulled you in the middle of an inning?

That was awesome.

(STUPID! I'M SO STUPID!!)

I'd throw a towel onto Andruw Jones too. It'd be filled with live grenades, maybe. Or bricks covered in Anthrax. Or ClawShrimp.

FRITZY HAS A POINT CUZ EVER SINCE I STARTED BLOGGING WITH WOW I HAVE SEEN MY AVERAGE FALL BELOW 400 AND EVERYONE KNOWS I HIT 400. ALSO CAN SOMEONE GOOGLE THAT JALAPENO GLAZE FOR ME I WENT OUT AND BOUGHT THE PEPPERS AND ALL.

ALSO I AM HITTIN 400 LIFETIME AGAINST TOOD JONES SO CLEARLY I AM THE DOMINANT COMMENTER HERE, THE DOMMENTER I WILL SAY

It appears as though Chipper Jones has my login information.
