Waiver trade deadline passed w/o a trade of Chipper….

In theory, trade can still occur however Chipper would not be eligible for the post season roster.

I have a question, now that I read the ‘more info’. I perceive a conflict between the literal wording of the answers: “Yes, Chipper makes it through season” and “No, but plays 123 games”. What if he plays all the way through the season, but because of stints on the DL or just off days, he registers 124 games? Is the difference when he retires (which is already announced to be after the season)? So, if he actually does what he says he’ll do (retire at the end of the season), then it does not matter how many games he actually played. Could even be 0 as long as he remains on the DL for the year without actually retiring. Am I correct?

If Chipper doesn’t actually (not announce) “retire” until after end of regular season after having been with the Braves the entire season, “Yes” pays out at 100 irrespective of if he plays or how many games he plays for the Braves. The “No” alternatives pay out only if he retires (or is traded) prior to the end of the regular season.

I suppose one clarification as I re-read details – if the Braves release Chipper and he does not “retire” (presumably because he wants the rest of his salary) and the Braves do not pick him back up, the relevant non-trade “No” stock will govern.

That didn’t take long: From Rotowire: Atlanta third baseman Chipper Jones will open the upcoming season on the disabled list after having arthroscopic surgery Monday to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee, according to MLB.com. The injury-riddled Jones suffered his latest setback on Thursday, roughly an hour before the start of his retirement press conference. Jones, who said this year will be his final season, had the same procedure last July and was sidelined nearly three weeks.

“Traded” seems to be trading awfully low. Here’s the scenario: Chipper is playing well, Braves are hopelessly out of it by All-Star break, Yanks (or some other playoff hopeful) need third baseman (A-Rod injured), offer up Betances to rent Chipper for rest of year, Braves say “Chipper, you’ve been a great Brave, could you do this one last thing for us and have one last shot to get to the World Series”.
chelseaboys   •   Thu Mar 22 2012 at 06:38pm PDT
More likely that old Chipper is broken down and no good to anyone so he just plays out the string.
