Chipper Jones and Braves agree to 3-year contract extension

Another one hot right off the presses. It looks like Chipper Jones will be a lifelong member of the Atlanta Braves:

The Atlanta Braves announced today that they have agreed to terms with third baseman Chipper Jones on a three-year contract extension. Jones was due to become a free agent after the 2009 season, but the extension runs through the 2012 campaign, with a vesting option for 2013, and virtually guarantees that the 36-year-old Jones will play his entire Major League career in a Braves uniform.

Fan-f-ing-tastic! Finally some really really good news to hang our hats on in this off-season of dreary news. There's a press conference at 2:30pm today. Kudos to Chipper, Frank Wren, and the whole gang for getting this hammered out now and not letting it drag on into the season.
