February 26th, 20102:17 pm
no its filled with snow…. brrrrrr. somebody give me a jacket!
Tell it like it is.

NYCBravesFan—I did not say chipper didn’t use to be,Im saying he is not now.I’m saying he needs to retire and let younger blood take over.Every player reaches that point sometime in thier careers just ask Glavine.
February 26th, 20102:33 pm
For all of you die hard chipper haters tell me who is going to play third or second or SS if Chipper retired tomorrow. There really isn’t anyone. You could try to use noodle are Glaus over there but I bet that would last for about a month and then there goes that shoulder again. Sure Prado could move over but now you are short a second baseman who is going to fill that hole? If Chipper retired tomorrow we have 0 shot and the playoffs.

He need to!!!
February 26th, 20102:41 pm
Seriously he is one year removed from the batting title in 08. A guy cant have an off year. I remember back in 04 when he struggled so bad and everyone was calling for him to be traded said his career in ATL was over and he was past his prime so one and so one. Here again we have one down season and it is the same ol story everyone is calling for his head. Jeez give the guy a chance.
He need to!!!!
So does the old man!!!!
February 26th, 20102:44 pm

February 26th, 20102:51 pm
Kcg —old love afairs die hard.Jeez give it up.
The Redneck- What exactly did his off the filed issue do to the Braves organization or MLB? Who exactly did the Braves get rid of because of one incident of infidelity or other wise?

Tell IT like It Is…is RIGHT…..It is TIME for Hooter,Iron man….to close the curtain !!
February 26th, 20103:48 pm
I’ve said it before and I will say it again. The Braves are my team, win or lose. I think Chipper just might retire next year after Bobby is gone. Whether he manages or not is up to someone besides me but I would not be opposed to it. What ever he does, I hope it is with the Braves if it is in baseball. LOVE MY BRAVOS!!

Whatever fellas when the season is complete and chipper has another typical chipper season under his belt I will be sure to point this conversation to all you doubters.
February 26th, 20105:48 pm
My God, is this like Spring Training for bloggers, too? I swear, there sure do seem like there are a lot of posters here with 99’s and 76’s on the back of their uniforms!

[...] Yet he recently mentioned again about potentially retiring after the 2010 campaign. Bobby Cox doesn’t believe the third baseman. … Eric Hinske paid $5,000 to get his entire back tattooed. … Top prospect Jason [...]

I lived in South GA, & at Grandma’s, I wasn’t allowed to watch Dallas on Friday nites in the late 70’s/80’s, because the ALL the braves’ games were televised on TBS (THOSE were the days); I was 8, & my 5′0″, 90 lb. Grandma had a rule. She was a fan, & for that 2-3 hours so were you. She taught me what it was to be a fan.
Barring any medical illness, she watched or listened to every game, every season, through every players strike, & every rain delay, from the time they came to Atlanta in ‘66(?) or ‘67(?) until she passed on my baby bro’s b’day right after the Braves lost the NLCS in 2003. It was the only thing in the last 6 months of her life that her mind could comprehend (because of the surgeries).
Everyone here needs to take a moment to remember why this is called “America’s Favorite Passtime”, & why these guys were ‘America’s Team’.
I found in her things some of her yearly calendars; every game was marked with the other team’s name, both pitchers’ names, & the final score; she also recorded if we got ‘free baseball’ (that’s what Skip used to call extra innings for you VERY young folks who don’t have much use for the REAL old-timers like my 87-year old Grandma). My ‘95 World Series ball isn’t much, but it tells me that EVERYONE played the game; & the brevity of the spotlight doesn’t affect a true fan one way or the other.
Thanks for letting me pay tribute to a great lady….

Thank YOU, Ducky, for sharing your story with US.

Retire already. What kind of clubhouse leader talks about retirement in the middle of a pennant race as Chipper did last year? We’re better off with Infante at third.
February 27th, 20103:08 pm
I read how good they will be and Chipper retiring and this pitcher and that player will be the future, plus this will be a good season, Basically what they have being saying every year for the last 5 years.
All I have to say about the Braves, enough talk and proof it.
February 27th, 20103:16 pm
Chipper has been great and easily in the HOF. However he has hit that age that players usually decline rapidly (see MIke Schmidt) for non steroid players and realistically he will not hit more than 20 homers. But he is such a great hitter that he can be more of a contact hitter that is over .300. Last year and this year we need some homers but we will need others to deliver these. Put Chipper in the number 2 spot and let him work counts and get on base. He still has very much value to our team.
February 27th, 20104:33 pm
I hope Chippie retires. When you make more errors that homers, it’s time to go. Go back to school and laern how to talk you bum.
February 27th, 20104:41 pm
wasn’t one of Chipper’s problems last year that the opposing pitchers didn’t have to pitch to him? Remember the Murphy/Horner lineup?
old man 79

Who cares if he retires… these high school games are much more entertaining , because they play for the fun of it …I haven’t cared about sports since they got to be so over paid when I was in high school in the late 40’s,living in Houston,Tx.. 2-3 of us kids used to ride home with a WORLD CHAMPION pitcher for the ST Louis Cardinnals,Who lived in our neighborhood….He worked in a machine shop during off season to make ends meet… He played ball because love of the game and he was a much better player than these today…
February 27th, 20107:34 pm
If he can’t stay healthy, I hope he does retire. We need that salary for somebody that can play 150+ games..
February 27th, 20107:40 pm
Chipper needs to retire. He’s such a poor leader.
February 27th, 20108:00 pm
tp would be a great replacement for bcox!!!!
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
