MIAMI (AP) -- The Miami Marlins want Chipper Jones to go fishing.
Truth is, they've probably felt that way for a while.
Jones, who has more logged more games, hits, home runs and RBIs against the Marlins than anyone else, added to his collection of going-away gifts from his final season before his last game in Miami on Wednesday night. The Marlins gave Jones a fancy fly-fishing rod and reel among other gifts in a pregame ceremony, one that also included a video tribute and greetings from Jeff Conine and Jose Reyes.
Jones has said he is retiring after the 2012 campaign ends.
"I don't know why he wants to quit playing," said Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen, who raved about things Jones did during Miami's 4-3 win over Atlanta on Tuesday night. "To me, good. Yeah, get out of here. He plays against the Marlins very well."
