TAMPA, Fla. -- After hearing of Brian Cashman's interest, Chipper Jones' agent, BB Abbott, said his client got a chuckle out of it.

Abbott said if Jones ever considered a short list of teams for a return, the Yankees would be on it. Ultimately, though, Jones' legacy is with the Braves and he has no interest in coming out of retirement.

"He was part amused, part flattered," Abbott told ESPNNewYork.com.

With Derrek Lee "intrigued" at the possibility of a return, I would say he is the most likely to actually be a Yankee. At the least, Lee should offer some more power.

QUESTION: Who would you want the Yankees to sign? Chipper? Lee? Or Scott Rolen.
