Although Andruw Jones was once classified as a defensive specialist, it is one dimensional to think of him only that way. Granted, Jones captured ten straight Gold Glove Awards and also led the National League in Defensive bWAR four times and is second all-time in Total Zone Runs with six straight seasons (1997-03), but he also had an offensive acumen that has to be respected, which included 434 career Home Runs, a Home Run and RBI Title in 2005, which certainly pushed up his career bWAR of 62.8, a number that is not far off the Cooperstown threshold.
