Red Sox offseason overview - with the Boston Globe's Gordon Edes
Jones, a nine-time Gold Glove winner, has been called the best center fielder that his manager, Bobby Cox, has ever seen.

Jones is not eligible for free agency until after 2007, but with him likely to be seeking a new deal of $20m per annum, Braves may look to move him.
