8 Teams That Cannot Wait for Chipper Jones to Retire

In his Hall of Fame career, Chipper Jones has mashed almost every team he has faced. When you end your career with a .304/.401/.531 slash line (a feat which greats Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Honus Wagner, and Frank Robinson were unable to accomplish) and have almost 470 home runs to your name, this is an inevitability.

Consider this: Chipper has an OPS of .900 or greater against half of the franchises in Major League Baseball.  

I'll even do you one better.

Chipper's cumulative statistics (organically calculated, thank you very much) against his current National League Eastern Divisional foes: 3746 at bats, a slash line of .310/.412/.538 (that's a .950 OPS), and 179 home runs.

The word disgusting comes to mind.  

Although Chipper Jones has done a lot of good for the game of baseball. a very safe assumption can be made that the 29 other franchises (especially the eight that grace this slideshow) cannot wait for Chipper's bat to leave the game and cease to do them damage.
