Living legends tend to live a little longer in baseball. This, perhaps, is why there was relatively little fanfare surrounding last month’s announcement that Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones would retire at the end of the season. The 40-year-old Jones has been in the majors for so long that his retirement has been expected for years. When it finally came, the news was met with the same degree of surprise and lament as news that your 98-year-old great uncle kicked the bucket from natural causes. And it's unfortunate, mainly because Jones was one of the best players in baseball for the better part of two decades.
