OK, so Chipper won't announce anything today after all

Jun 15, 2010, 1:08 PM EDT

Mark Bowman of MLB.com just tweeted that, contrary to earlier reports, Chipper Jones has changed his mind about making any announcements today.  Guess that was some meeting with Cox and Wren.

So to recap: Chipper is thinking about maybe retiring this season but thinks it may be premature to announce what he likely just discussed with the team and could change his mind. Or not. Or the reverse.

What?

    Atta boy, Chipper!

    Wow…Chipper’s got the Favre game down pat. Except isn’t this indecision supposed to be handcuffing the Bravos right before spring training?

    Well done, sir.

    Wren will try to trade Chipper to Am League team… Chipper’s hero was # 7 NY

    I agree with Utley’s–This act is way old.
    What I don’t understand is why the Braves keep batting him third. Sentiment and “loyalty” is one thing, but winning games and the pennant so Bobby can go out with yet another playoff flop is another. Put your best hitter third, not your most senior.

    Chipper has asked to be moved a few times, i believe to second spot to give heyward the third. Makes sense to me he can still draw some walks however he is fast becoming a distraction. Case in point we are talking about his retirement and braves have a game and a half lead on the mets who are trying to get some trade talks started and run down the pennant. Definite hall of famer for me though, good luck Chipper, hope you get to playing well and shake this case of farveitis.
