Unexpected Power Source: Andruw Jones Looks to Revive Career

Left for career death in the oblivion that houses many once great players and franchise favorites, Andruw Jone,s has suffered the fate of aging journeyman since leaving the Atlanta Braves in 2007 after a 12 year career. Once an annual 30+ HR and 90+ RBI guy, Jones' power numbers dropped like a stone combining for just 20 HR's over the last 2 years with stints in LA and Texas.

While still early in this 2010 season, the Chicago White Sox can only hope that Jones' early season numbers carry through the entire year. Through just 14 games, he already has 6 HR's (including a walk-off), and 9 RBI while hitting,, a more than respectable .295 with a .415 OBP.

White Sox collectors have scant choices depicting Jones in his South Side gear other than this card from the Topps Team Sets available at retail or here on ebay.

As a Braves fan, I can only hope that Andruw continues the success he's had early on. He's gotten back in shape and looks like his game has dramatically improved. Would love to see him back in the ATL someday!
