Chipper Jones and wife seperate as Braves skid.
As Chipper Jones winds down his All-Star career with the Braves, he is also riding into the sunset of his marriage of 12 years with wife Sharon.
According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution the pair have separated and Jones has declined comment.
The marriage will be the second false start for Jones who divorced his first wife Karin after having a son outside of that union.
For as bad as things seem to be off-the-field, Jones just came off the DL list and is trying to help the Braves on-the-field.
On Wednesday he commented on the team’s recent downturn after losing to the Yankees.
“The 4-0 lead last night in the eighth bugs me. The 4-0 lead in the fifth inning against Romero and the Blue Jays, that bugs me.
Our young kids pitched great the first two nights. Huddy pitched great tonight. You play good baseball and you get beat, you can live with it.
But when you’ve got leads middle innings, late innings, and I’m not talking about one-run leads, I’m talking about four-run leads, and you give them up, that’s a little concerning.
But I’ll just chalk it up to it being a little bit of a fluke and move on. We’ve got a day off tomorrow, flush this series out of our system and get ready for the Orioles.”
Regardless of what is happening at home, look for Jones to help the Braves get it going.
