Ozzie to Chipper: Why are you retiring?

Ozzie to Chipper: Why are you retiring?

MIAMI -- If you're hitting close to .300 with 14 home runs and 60 RBIs, obviously you can still play.

So Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen has a question for Atlanta's Chipper Jones.

"I asked him, why does he want to stop playing?" Guillen said.

Jones, who is retiring after the season, played his final game in Miami against the Marlins on Wednesday. The Marlins paid tribute to Jones before the game. Team special assistant Jeff Conine and Jose Reyes greeted the Braves slugger at home plate, presenting Jones with a fishing rod and fishing supplies.

The veteran still can do damage. He entered the game batting .297.

"We're not going to miss him," Guillen joked. "The Braves should miss him."

Guillen, a former teammate of Jones, said the Braves veteran is a great ambassador for the game.

"I think Chipper was very underrated in his career," Guillen said. "All his numbers and stuff, although people talk about it now, when I played with him, he was another player on the field. Not too many people talked about him."
