Reporters know a good time to catch Chipper Jones is when he’s putting his socks on. One pair of the “old man” sanitary socks, as he calls them, and two pairs of the blues take a while to put on. He’s a kept audience, and always a good one. So it was strange to see Jones grabbing handfuls of socks and tossing them into a box Saturday afternoon as he stood at his locker in jeans, a T-shirt and a Braves cap backwards, as a retired man.
