MLB Trade Rumors: Andruw Jones to the Mets??

Buster Olney reported this afternoon that the Mets and Dodgers are talking about a trade involving Andruw Jones going to the Mets. What the Dodgers get in return was not mentioned, but it's possible the Mets would like the Dodgers take on Luis Castillo's contract.

Here is the Mets plans for Jones, per Olney:

The Mets' intention, if they were to conclude a deal for Jones, would be to play the 10-time Gold Glove center fielder in right field, flanking Carlos Beltran. Ryan Church played most of the season in right field for the Mets last season.

Right field? I guess Church isn't healthy? I am sure the Dodgers would have to eat most of Jones contract.
