Chipper Jones to Finish Career with Braves
The Chipper Jones saga has finally been resolved.
Jones, 36, will get a chance to finish his career as an Atlanta Brave, signing a 3 year contract extension with an option on a fourth securing his future until 2012.
Personally, the Braves made the right move. Jones has been with the Braves since he was drafted in the 1990’s, came through Greenville Braves organization before making it big, playing full time in Atlanta in 1995.
The John Smoltz saga left a sour taste in our mouth’s and I feared Jones may get the same treatment, so it is very refreshing to see this is a done deal.
