Chipper Jones is an all-time Brave. He’s been through the best times that the franchise has ever had and the recent struggles to make it to the postseason up until 2010. He’s won a World Series Championship and many division titles.
He’s been a Most Valuable Player and he’s posted extremely good numbers throughout his career.
The problem now, though, is that Jones will be 39 years-old in April and has seen a huge decline in his numbers since he hit .364 in 2008. He’s had his power taken away his average has fallen off drastically.
Jones is entering his 16th full season in the big leagues and knows his way around the league. It could be his last season putting on a baseball uniform, which means it may also be our last chance to see a living legend.
It doesn’t all have to be sad though, because Jones still brings a lot to the table.
