  12. You Could Go to WAR With Chipper

    Jonah Keri

    The great Rembert Browne has the goods on Chipper Jones announcing he'll retire at year's end, and what that means for someone who doesn't spend every waking hour reminding people that the Braves did not, in fact, win the NL East 14 years in a row. F...
