Andruw Jones is a Huge Mess

Andruw Jones is trying to figure out how to get his .161 batting average back in the lineup. Nobody, apparently even Jones, expects him to take a single at-bat away from Manny Ramirez, Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, or even fourth outfielder Juan Pierre.  

So Jones has been trying out first base at AAA Las Vegas.  This makes sense, because of course he will supplant James Loney, one of the Dodgers hottest hitters, when  he returns from the DL.

The Dodgers apparently are also eager to get Jones' .161 batting average back in the lineup because they agreed to this absurd experiment.  It would make a lot more sense to find at bats for Pierre, by making him the only left handed hitting shortstop at any level above Little League.
