Teams have called Chipper Jones’ agent to see if he’s really retired

Jan 7, 2013, 2:26 PM EDT

If anyone thinks Chipper isn’t truly retired or, if had doubts, that he’d play for anyone other than Atlanta, they’ve made a mammo miscalculation. That said:


That said: who do you think would have a better 2013 season: zombie Chipper Jones or Kevin Youkilis?

    If Larry’s looking for another career he could charge for access to his tweets of him trying to do things around the house.

    I know guys sometimes come out of retirement, but to the teams that called, just let the dude live his post-MLB life. He did his work, and teams already acknowledged that by giving him gifts. Let Chipper be with his kids (and basketball-ladder hoop), and we will see him in the Hall.

      Heck, it doesn’t hurt to ask. They’re just making sure this isn’t some Favre-esque retirement.

        This is baseball, Clemens-esque.

        Touché. I stand corrected. Pettitte-esque perhaps?

        But if he un-retired, he’d have to do a separate tour of the league just to give back all the retirement gifts they gave him last season.

      It’s not like they are calling his home/cell number. His agent is fielding all these calls. Chipper’s life is completely unaffected by this. I’m sure he appreciates your concern though.

    He’s too young for the Yankees.

      This is really cracking me up for some reason… great post.

    Chipper is El Bravo for life. Move along folks, nothing to see here.

    Chipper left with a year still to go on his contract with the Braves. If he were to un-retire, he wouldn’t be able to play anywhere else anyway, would he? So why are other teams bothering, unless it’s with their trade offers?

    My money is on zombie Chipper.

    • cur68 - Jan 7, 2013 at 3:06 PM

      Not only would he CRUSH mammo-shots he’d eat yickety brains. The world would FEAR Zombie Larry.

      • indaburg - Jan 7, 2013 at 3:19 PM

        I can see him going after Flushing brains first. I wish I could draft Zombie Chipper for fantasy.

      • cur68 - Jan 7, 2013 at 3:22 PM

        I think its a league rule that no voodoo is allowed, so Zombie Larry’s banned. Now pardon me,but I must go and light my Jobu (Jose Bautista Incarnation; Beavermen Vestments) Effigy’s cigar for him. Daddy needs a 1st baseman….

        I can imagine what those phone calls were like. “I know you’re out there, Chipper….I can smell your brayyyyaaaainnnnn….”,

    I seriously might not have anyone to hate in baseball in 2013. Well, except Selig, of course.

    • stlouis1baseball - Jan 7, 2013 at 5:03 PM

      Really Philiac? Come on! You will hate the Yankees just like the rest of us.

      • historiophiliac - Jan 7, 2013 at 5:29 PM

        Oh, I remain a proud member of Hater Nation, for sure. I’m just losing all the individuals for whom I have a blinding visceral hate….kinda sad.

    Wouldn’t Chipper have to give back all the cool retirements gifts he received on his farewell tour?
