Speaking of managers who pad stats at the end of the year, here's what Bobby Cox had to say about Chipper:
Atlanta Journal-Constitution wrote:Cox plans to give Chipper Jones every chance to reach 100 RBIs for the ninth consecutive season and tie Sammy Sosa's National League record.
"I don't think he needs any rest," said Cox, noting all the time Jones missed early this season because of a partially torn hamstring. "Records are important. I'd like to see him do it. Why not give him a shot."
Looks like that worked out great..... "why not give him a shot" well I think we know why now
"Jack, will you call me, if you're able?"
