Chipper Jones of the Atlanta Braves feels like an old man, and according to ex-teammate Brian Jordan, it's his own fault (katchop)


While playing three consecutive seasons (1999-2001) and part of a fourth (2005) with Jordan, Jones concedes that he often arrived at the park, took a few swings, jogged a coupled times in the outfield and deemed himself ready to play. Thus, he at least had some understanding about why Jordan recently questioned his dedication to preparation during a recent interview with MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM.

“I think at some point when you start getting older, you really have to do the extra things,” Jordan recently said. “You’ve got to get in that whirlpool, you’ve got to stretch, and really work hard to keep your flexibility before you get out there on the field. And I’m not sure if he’s dedicating himself to doing that. He’s so used to — you know, I played with him so long — just sitting around and waiting for the game, and take a couple jogs and go play. But as you get older, you know, you cannot do that. You’ve gotta go the extra mile to be ready to play.”

  1. I’ve been exploring for a liltte bit for any high-quality articles or weblog posts in this sort of area . Exploring in Yahoo I ultimately stumbled upon this web site. Reading this information So i am happy to express that I have a very excellent uncanny feeling I found out exactly what I needed. I such a lot undoubtedly will make certain to don’t overlook this website and provides it a glance regularly.

  2. Well the dumbest thing I saw all day was the poll on the San Jose Sharks’ page aisnkg “Provided the ice conditions could be made acceptable, should a game be played in San Jose?”Now that’s wishful thinking. Most arenas in the Bay Area can barely keep their ice frozen. There are no more than a handful of outdoor rinks, and their ice surfaces are like skating on cookie dough. I would go to the game just to see what kind of equipment is required to make outdoor ice happen when it’s +15C in the middle of winter with a 50% chance of rain.
