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 implies Jose Bautista is not liked around baseball

MLB chief baseball officer Joe Torre is expected to announce disciplinary action against those involved in Sunday’s brawl between the Toronto Blue Jays and Texas Rangers as soon as Tuesday.

Atlanta couple has Chipper Jones-themed wedding

Back in June, Chipper Jones tied the knot with his third wife, former Playboy model Taylor Higgins, in the Bahamas. Saturday, at some venue that is obviously not the Bahamas (and more than likely a VFW somewhere in the Greater Atlanta area), some dude forced his wife into having a Chipper Jones-themed wedding. @jrrigsby11605 @RealCJ10 @lilgeorgiapeach @Braves Best wedding attire...

Chipper Jones challenged military veteran to fight

By Steve DelVecchio Former Atlanta Braves slugger Chipper Jones is known to do some pretty dumb things on Twitter from time to time, and the argument he had with one of his followers early Thursday morning was no exception.

Chipper Jones Supports 19-Year-Old Hunter

Man, some people simply do not like Kendall Jones.

Chipper Jones shaves head for cancer

I’ve said some harsh things about Chipper Jones in the past, but, on Wednesday…dude got a pass. Perhaps inspired by the Tampa Bay Rays, the Atlanta Braves legend was in the Tampa area to help raise funds for Pediatric Cancer Foundation and, in the process, get his head shaved. “I’m a little scared to see how much my hair line has receded,” Jones said prior to being shorn...

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. Flash forward to today. Jones' former teammate Tim Hudson has now signed with the Giants. Hudson was a teammate...
