Chipper: "I Would Never Walk Out On My Team"

"Chipper Jones said there was no chance he would retire before or during the 2012 season and that his comments to reporters Monday were misinterpreted.

The veteran Braves third baseman said Monday that because of pain in his right knee, "tomorrow might be my last day" and "I don't know if I can make it through this year."

On Tuesday, he said those comments were not meant to be taken literally, that he said them "somewhat tongue in cheek" after being asked about his future and whether he'd continue playing behind 2012.

Jones said he was only trying to emphasize that due to his chronic knee pain, his career beyond 2012 was uncertain. But not his status for the upcoming season.

"I will make it through tomorrow as well as this year," Jones said Tuesday, upset that published reports with his quotes set off concern among family and friends."
