Internet sports betting notes have Atlanta third baseman Chipper Jones thinking about retirement.
Offshore sports betting had Jones saying that if has another season like this one he would give retirement some serious consideration. Offshore sports betting facts had Jones signing a three-year, $42-million contract extension in March that runs through 2012.
Internet sports betting stats have Jones hitting a pathetic .110 with one home run in his last 22 games before Thursday. “I’m not going to tolerate the numbers I have right now for very long,” said Jones. His overall average is .268 with 16 homers and 63 RBIs as Internet sports betting stats showed. “I’m certainly not going to stick around for a big contract if I’m not having fun and not producing,” said Jones, “I’m not saying I’m retiring at the end of this year or the end of next year, but if I become an average player, I’m not sticking around. I’m not going to hamstring the ballclub with the money I’m making, and I’m not going to be happy being a mediocre player.”
The Braves are still considered a team to watch in Internet sports betting at the sportsbook. They are really not a threat to make the playoffs though as Internet sports betting info had it. Jones has been a big part of Atlanta’s offense for a long time and a player that impacted Internet sports betting at the online sportsbook but that time could be coming to an end. “For me at this point, I’m on a year-to-year personal schedule,” Jones said, “Contract status is not going to dictate how long I play.”
In the last three Internet sports betting seasons, Jones hit .332 with a 1.015 on-base plus slugging percentage. This year that Internet sports betting number has slipped to .828 OPS and it is a really poor .711 in his past 75 games. “The day I become mediocre on a regular basis, I’m probably going to ride off into the sunset,” Jones said. “Because I don’t have fun playing the game at the level I’m playing at now.”
The Internet sports betting facts show that Jones may simply be done. He is an older player whose best years are behind him as offshore sports betting stats have it. There may not be a recovery or a bounce back in Internet sports betting numbers for Jones. It could just be he is old as offshore sports betting info indicates.
