Jones-Cubs

Jacque Jones and the Chicago Cubs agreed to a $16 million, three-year contract on Tuesday, one day after the outfielder rejected the Minnesota Twins' offer of salary arbitration.

The 30-year-old Jones hit .249 last season with 23 homers and 73 RBIs, the second straight year his average declined following a pair of .300 seasons. He set career highs in 2002 with 27 homers and 85 RBIs.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this move will not help the Cubs join the White Sox and Red Sox in ending long droughts. They really need some OBP to go with Lee and Ramirez.
