Chipper Wants To Stay With Braves

MLB.com’s Mark Bowman talked with Braves third baseman Chipper Jones, who is entering the final year of his contract.  Jones would like a three-year extension, but hasn’t had any talks with the Braves this winter.  He’d prefer not to negotiate during the season.

Jones, 37 in April, hit a massive .364/.470/.574 in 534 plate appearances last year.  His defense came out above average in the plus/minus system.  FanGraphs placed a phenomenal value on Jones’ season: $34.4MM.
