Chipper Jones not in lineup for last game at Mets

Braves third baseman Chipper Jones is out of the starting lineup for his last game in New York against the Mets, a bittersweet finish against the team he's tormented throughout his 19 seasons in the major leagues. Jones says he told manager Fredi Gonzalez on Saturday night that he needed the day off, but now says he's feeling better. Jones says he'll ''be pleading...

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. When he pinch hit in the ninth, he received cheers in full voice -- along with some boos, of course. Jones walked, and once a pinch runner came in to replace him...

Braves 3, Mets 2(10)

Chipper Jones and the Braves got the better of the Mets one more time. Brian McCann homered and drove in the go-ahead run in extra innings to give Atlanta a 3-2 win over the Mets on Sunday in Chipper Jones' final game in New York. Jones did not start, but manager Fredi Gonzalez sent him out with the lineup card before the game and the retiring Braves star got a warm hand from...

The Mets Say Goodbye to Larry Wayne….Thank God!

New York Mets fans have been on a first-name basis with Larry Wayne “Chipper” Jones since 1995. It was then that Jones hit his first of many big league home runs at Shea Stadium. To make matters worse, it was a ninth inning game winner. Since that day in May, Jones has been readily identified by one name…kinda like Yogi, the Babe or Snooki. Chipper Jones is one of the only...

Braves sweep Mets in Jones' New York finale

NEW YORK -- The Mets survived Chipper Jones' final at-bat in Flushing, when he seemed poised to deliver one more torturous blow in the ninth, amid the rare sight of a standing ovation for him by New York fans. Instead he walked to remain hitless in his final series there, but the Atlanta Braves managed to push across a run without him in the 10th inning Sunday. Brian McCann...

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. But all that did was send Jones out of Citi Field hitless in his final series there, before the Braves managed to push across a run without him in the 10th inning Sunday. Brian McCann, who picked up Jones' mantle as a Mets-killer the past two...

Pollypalooza Farewell Tour

We may have just witnessed the farewell tour of Placido Polanco in Major League Baseball, as he was placed on the DL yet again.  He certainly didn't garner the same amount of fanfare as Chipper Jones has this year in his final season.  Of course Polly hasn't called it a career yet, that's merely speculation on my part. Polly's second tour of duty with the Phillies...

I get older, my baseball cards stay the same

I'm not going to go horning in on the territory of people who actually care about baseball cards, don't worry, but I do want to note that I feel a certain attachment to the old guys still hanging around baseball (Chipper Jones, Jim Thome, and Omar Vizquel, mainly, though not exclusively) in large or perhaps even sole part ("sole part"? Is that a thing?) because...
