Why no Andruw Jones Talk?

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/sports_blog/2009/01/dodgers-deal-wi.html

With LA and Jones parting ways and our history of cheap veteran pick ups, I was just wondering why no one's suggesting Jones to the A's. He'd be a Frank Thomas-type risk/reward with a cheap contract and would give us a right handed bat to plug into the line up behind Giambi (assuming we get him).

I myself wouldn't mind a 2-5 line up heart of Cust/Holiday/Giambi/, Jones (L-R-L-R). As for the "outfield is crowded" believers; with the the exception of Holiday I don't see Buck, Davis, Sweeney putting up 30-100 seasons next year (if ever) as Jones has averaged during his career even with last year's joke of a season.

As an A's fan I doubt this (and much of the ideas discussed here) will happen, but I'm just surprised no one was talking about.
