This might be Chipper Jones' final year

http://espn.go.com/mlb/spring2012/st...nd-career-near

Quote:
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- It's the 22nd spring training of his professional lifetime, and off in the distance, Chipper Jones can see the countdown clock ticking.

3 … 2 … 1 … seeya?

As he takes those leisurely spring-training hacks in the batting cage, as he fields ground balls and flips them to first, as he leans back at his locker and absorbs abuse from his teammates for allowing a pre-tee-time interview to last half an hour, he's suddenly savoring every minute -- all of it.

Because this just might be it. This just might be the final spring -- meaning, if we apply our logic-class lessons correctly, also the final season -- of the Braves third baseman's Hall of Fame career.

...
I know there are a couple of Braves fans on the board that would enjoy this read. Even if you aren't a Braves fan... I figure that if anyone could appreciate what a legend at 3B does for a team... it would be Royal fans.

Chipper is a living legend the did what most players never do... play for a single team through his whole career. Instomatic hall of famer, a top 5 third baseman of all time, and equally as easy a top 5 switch hitter of all time.

#10 will soon be retired in Atl.

I like Hudson a lot, and he actually seems like a really nice guy.

**** the cheaters. Chipper is the gold standard of how to play the game for those who played in the steroid era.

As for you being at the Ted... I am jealous. I've been a Braves fan since 93 when I moved to Atlanta and have never had the opportunity to see the guy play. I hope he plays one more season and they come to The K.

If he gets named to the All Star team this year... I will definitely be there for the game and hope to get him to sign something for me.

The Ted is a great place to watch a game actually. I go each year when the Cubs are here (unless football has already started), and typically try to get to another couple games.

You should fly down this summer and see the guy play. He's on what's left of his very last leg.

I think the guy is gonna be a baseball lifer. I would not be at all surprised if he winds up being the manager of the Braves within the next 10-15 years.

Shocked and amazed that dude still plays.

Early 90's I worked the daytime shift, I would work all day, eat supper, grab a beer and watch TBS, every night... Since they went on strike, I haven't watched a full game of baseball since...

While I understand the sentiment... the large majority of players who were in the league when the strike happened are long retired. The game hasn't changed 95% of the rosters have. Why hold these players accountable for the actions of the previous generation?

Too bad meng... still a good game. Just sucks that the Bravos aren't on TBS anymore. I'm probably going to buy mlb.tv season pass this year. Hoping that they have a sale right before the season like they did last year. IIRC, Premium was like 74.99 for the whole year.
