CHIPPER JONES RUMORS

Chipper Jones doesn’t rule out being Braves’ manager

The Atlanta Braves did the not-so-surprising thing earlier this week by firing manager Fredi Gonzalez after a league-worst 9-28 start. Brian Snitker has gone 3-3 since taking over for the team, but it looks like former player Chipper Jones could be in line for the job. Jones retired from the diamond following the 2012 season after spending 19 years with the team. He was the first...

Chipper Jones hasn’t ruled out managing Braves

If the Atlanta Braves were to come calling, Chipper Jones just might consider ditching retirement to come back to the dugout as manager of his old ball club. Speaking with Atlanta’s 680-AM The Fan on Friday, Jones wasn’t tipping his hand. “No comment,” was his answer, via ALJ.com, when he was asked straight up if he had any interest in managing the Braves. But he wouldn’t...

Chipper Jones takes jab at Tim Hudson on Twitter

Back in October, Chipper Jones picked the Dodgers to beat the Braves in the NLDS. The players in the clubhouse weren't too thrilled about that, and as a result, no one would catch his first pitch before Game 1 of the NLDS, leaving the team's mascot (Homer) to do the honors.
