    Something Even A Met Fan Could Appreciate!!!!

    Here is a clip from an article about Chipper Jones...


    Chipper Jones said if the Braves want him and make a fair offer, he'll stay. He said he's not looking for the biggest deal he can get. He wants to retire a Brave. He never so much as suggests he's underpaid. "I'm never going to turn my nose up at $11 million," he said. "I understand that I've had the luxury of playing in the same place for a long time, for the same manager. I made my money." -- Atlanta Journal-Constitution

    Man, I know this guy has been public enemy #1 for many Met fans over the years but you have to respect this type of rare modern day athlete who isn't looking to squeeze every last cent from the game or the team he has played on (cough cough A-Rod cough cough).....

    I've reluctantly started to kinda like Chipper in the last few years.
