Nate Penn of GQ wrote an interesting article on Braves third baseman Chipper Jones. Some highlights:
- Interesting quote regarding tipping pitches: "I would say if you face seven pitchers in a week, four to five of them are doing something that gives them away." Jones says he owned Shane Reynolds for ten years for this reason.
- John Schuerholz treated the subject of re-signing Jones after ’09 delicately. One telling quote: "The reality of our business begs that we recognize the fact that it would be a really unusual development if he were to remain here."
- Chipper wants to play two to four more years, whether in Atlanta or elsewhere.
