Priced To Move: Chipper Jones Selling 4,500-Sq.-Ft. Mansion, With Car Stables, For Only $3.2 Million
It was around lunch time on Saturday that Chipper Jones had this thought: what if they put alligators in the Rio Grande? That would stop illegal immigration! Unfortunately, that thought made its way to his thumbs, and then to Twitter. Controversy ensued.
Remember when a young cancer survivor implored his Phillies to beat the Astros since Houston wasn’t as formidable an opponent as his cancer? We don’t quite have the same exasperation at futility here, but we do have another apparent cancer patient sporting a rather humorous sign.
It’s no mystery so many of their peers are, and were, happy to see Chipper Jones and Bobby Cox retire. You know, because they terrorized their teams for so long. So it begs the question: which Brave made life more of a living hell for opposing clubs? Let’s examine – by way of the retirement gifts each received from opponents – after the jump.
Prior to the last All-Star Game of his career, Atlanta Braves third baseman and future Hall-of-Famer Chipper Jones was asked by NL manager Tony La Russa (who himself would be taking part in his final Midsummer Classic) to give a pre-game speech.
