Braves Third Baseman Chipper Jones talks with Forbes.com

New, 12 comments

The financial magazine Forbes has an interview up online with Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones. Why Forbes is interviewing a baseball player I do no know, but here is possibly the best answer to a question like this I've ever heard:

[Forbes:]  Near the end of the season, you mentioned that you were considering retirement after next season. Now that that the season is over, do you still feel the same?

[Chipper Jones:]  I was really frustrated with how the middle part of the season went for me. I have such high standards for myself and I will never settle for being a mediocre player. I will work extremely hard to make sure that doesn't happen again this year.

I think we will see a Chipper Jones on a mission next season. I know he can get there mentally, let's hope his body cooperates with him. The rest of the interview is here.
