Jones gets farewell from Mets fans, Braves win

NEW YORK (AP) -- Mets fans cheered the loudest for Chipper Jones once he was out of their ballpark for good. When he took the lineup card to home plate before his last game in Queens, Jones got some scattered applause.

Mark Simon Nails It On Chipper

As Good As David Wright Is, He’s Not Chipper Jones

I am a David Wright fan.  I’ve been an ardent supporter of the Mets’ third baseman since his first call-up to the big leagues in 2004.  I’ve seen him produce some of the greatest offensive seasons in franchise history and I’ve seen him make outstanding defensive plays.  I’ve also seen him represent the Mets at the All-Star Game more often that not. I have never been...

Braves 3, Mets 2 (10)

NEW YORK -- The Mets survived Chipper Jones' final at-bat in Flushing, when he seemed poised to deliver one more torturous blow.
