The Rev playing like he actually wants to win the starting SS job finally… nice to see.
Pastornicky singles – Beachy takes a strike…
Who came up with Win for 10? Ease is not that original.
I wish to hell that this Chris guy would have the politeness to come on the current blog and announce a new one and which one it is. I’m tired of searching all over on the days that he writes.
March 22nd, 20121:48 pm
Good bunt by Beachy moves the Rev to 2nd…
Bourn flies to center to end the 2nd…
March 22nd, 20121:50 pm
nolie, Amen to that.
Know this is a bad time during a live game, but wondering how the rest of you feel about the Captain thing for CHIPPER. Think I will ask again when there is no live game.
March 22nd, 20121:52 pm
George, why don’t you ask your friend Fredi?
March 22nd, 20121:53 pm
Wow DOB not around when CHIPPER makes a announcement, reminds me of last week.
After getting Nolasco, Beachy surrenders a single to Reyes…
I think Chipper will work with the team in ST for a couple of years and stay home with the wife and kids for a bit.
That would also give him a chance to find out if he can handle the frustration from teaching guys who don’t get hitting quite as well as he himself.
There isn’t much doubt about his knowledge of hitting, and I’m guessing that he’s able to communicate that knowledge effectively, but not every pupil can assimilate the lesson in a timely fashion. Chipper probably is well-served to find out if that fact would wear on him, first and foremost.
Ease (Win for Ten®)
March 22nd, 20121:54 pm
CB, notice the registered trademark thingy? Yeah, mine…
Chipper, we all want to retire from what ever the job maybe on our terms. As a loyal Braves fan of many, many years, I wish for yor a great year. It is and has been my pleasure to watch you play. GO BRAVES.
Gimpah & McError
One of the BEST third baseman? Do ya mean best offensive third baseman?
Because I can’t think of any HOF 3Bers that committed 15+ errors in a season 7 times!
The problem with you Atlanta ‘true fans’ would be this: Y’all care more about having Chipper Jones on the team than winning the World Series. Sure, if Atlanta was still a perennial last place team then blind allegiance would be understood. However, this team is a lot better than the 1980’s but the ‘true fans’ still seem to be satisfied with the status quo.
March 22nd, 20121:55 pm
spot on article by Mr Justice. Thanks for the link VJ.
1-2 pitch to Omar – ball 2…
March 22nd, 20121:56 pm
when i first saw the score box, I thought “we’re playing *Miami*…what crazy team is that?” This former-Marlin thing is going to take some getting used to.
got my 9/30 ticket via my Iphone
Omar singles to left – 1st and 2nd, 1 out…
March 22nd, 20121:58 pm
G&M– who would you’d rather had at third last year? Chipper or Martin? (Sorry Cab)
March 22nd, 20121:59 pm
Hanley grounds to Pastornicky’s backhand, infield single…bases loaded…
VJ doing great PBP duty, hope y’all appreciate it.

Come on, man. You’re not one of those low-self-esteem guys whose entire sense of self-worth is tied up in win-loss records, are you? Don’t be that guy, bro.
Say…you wouldn’t happen to have a brother named “Paul”, would you?
March 22nd, 20122:02 pm
John Buck singles on a changeup, runners advance one base each…
wonder if simmons would have gotten that grounder. hmmmmm
Bay Area Steve
If you go to the AJC Braves page, the main blog is linked at the top of the page under “Daily DOB.” If you weren’t aware… Y’all seem to be struggling.
Win for 10.
That is Jeff321, scoots…………………. Hall of Fame Idiot………
I’ve missed him, I could use the laughs.
Most likely Chipper will want to take some time off. He stated he would enjoy being. “Specialty” Hitting Coach. That sounds to me more of a Spring Training and AAA Hitting advisor, not a 6 month season traveling hitting coach
March 22nd, 20122:03 pm
The Braves have more wins than the Rays and Rangers. I guess they gonna suck too huh? *rolleyes*
CB – Soph came up with it. Ease stole it and got the trademark.
Bryan Petersen chopper to Uggla – only get the force at second after slight bobble by Uggla getting the ball out of his glove…
Come on Beachy, get it together and don’t let them score anymore.
March 22nd, 20122:04 pm
Marlins lead 3-1…
March 22nd, 20122:05 pm
I’ll miss him.
1-2 on Rowand…swung on and missed to end the top of the 3rd…
PL sighting @ 1:54pm
Thanks,Jimmy. Ease, you lying Petrel!
March 22nd, 20122:06 pm
Can you imagine the standing ovations he’ll be getting at his at bats this year…
March 22nd, 20122:07 pm
Gimpah & McError (PL): HOF 3rd Baseman 15 or more Errors 7 times? How about Brooks Robinson, the greatest defensive 3rd Baseman of all-time.
Check your facts, dirt bag!
March 22nd, 20122:08 pm
Nope that is Jeff321……………… dumb as a bag of rocks, but not a vicious hater of all things decent like PL.
March 22nd, 20122:09 pm
I had a doctor’s appointment this morning and missed all of the drama. Very sad day, Chipper will be missed in many ways, plus it makes me feel very old.
March 22nd, 20122:10 pm
Prado flies to left…
“Win For 10″ is ok… I don’t think anyone is going to be clamoring to get their hands on the trademark, though. It’s not all that catchy or marketable.
I’ve already got something better in mind, but I won’t post it here due to all the IP thieves (Ease). You’ll have to wait and buy the shirt.
Freddie also flies to left…
March 22nd, 20122:11 pm
Quick inning as Uggla flies to center…
Spring of George
March 22nd, 20122:13 pm
Great job, but I wonder if this is going to turn into Chipper’s magical farewell tour in each city.
Also, with a great year and/or potential lure of a better team next year, will he change his mind for another year next year?
Wonder what the Mets will give him? (pay his salary to go away maybe, hehehe).
Ease: Mother’s Finest puts on a great show and still kicks ass. They played all over The ATL in the early 70’s with another up and coming band named Lynyrd Skynyrd. Most nights it was standing room only for both bands.
Anybody got a link to the press conference?
CB, actually Jimmy is the rotten liar. Here’s the scoop:
Soph came up with Win for 10; Bat actually inadvertently came up with Win for Ten but dropped it as he was headed to the airport (to have banners made). So there it was, lying on the ground, so I picked it up and put a good shine on it. No lying, no stealing…
For the love of God score some runs. At least show you’re capable.
March 22nd, 20122:14 pm
It’s not all that catchy or marketable.
…says the guy who gets excited about a sopapillaporium.
I believe you might lack the gene that recognizes “marketably catchy”, Murphster. Win For Ten!
If there was ever any doubt that the world is filled with numbingly stupid people, this blog should prove it without question….
Cousins grounds out to Uggla…
March 22nd, 20122:15 pm
Home Run for Terry Tiffee…
March 22nd, 20122:16 pm
Hanging curve ball, per Don Sutton…
March 22nd, 20122:17 pm
S/O TO CHIPPER JONES, A REAL STAND UP GUY!! THANKS FOR THE YEARS AS A BRAVE!!! LOYALTY IS EVERYTHING, AN YOU STAYED TRUE!!! A TOWN BITCH!!! TELL ME WHAT U KNO BOUT IT!!
First homer allowed by Beachy this spring…
Before everyone gets all excited over David Wright, he is hurt and his numbers have gone down 4 years in a row. Not a good sign. I wonder if Vinnie C. or Clete Boyer are still playing?
March 22nd, 20122:18 pm
Tip of the hat to the greatest 3rd basemen this franchise will ever know. You are truely a legend Chipper, thanks for the memories. It is a rarety for any athlete to give his entire career to one city and we appreciate it. Lets make the 2012 season one for the books…
Because I can’t think of any HOF 3Bers that committed 15+ errors in a season 7 times!…Gimp
which just goes to prove how incredibly ignorant that you are about baseball, you sorry POS. Mathews is in the HOF last time I looked
March 22nd, 20122:19 pm
Reyes pops out to Bourn to end the top of the 4th – 4-1 Miami…
March 22nd, 2012
Thanks….I thought PL had used the gimpah name before.
March 22nd, 20122:20 pm
OK tme to start scoring
kenhotlanta, good to know, they will be here on 5/12…but unfortunately I will be going to the Braves game that evening…
Lee in S GA
Guess the deer and birds need to seek out newer ground. Chipper will be on the hunting prowl more than ever. Wish he would come down to this area…too many deer on the highway around these parts.
Glad you cleared that up, Ease.
Mike Schmidt committed 15+ errors 13 times in his career. In 18 seasons…
Jimmy the Rotten Liar
March 22nd, 20122:22 pm
Ease – Ok, it was theft by taking- not stealing.
You just didn’t like my “Win One for the Chipper” slogan.
Your and idiot!
Like I said, can’t even trust a petrel for nothin’.
March 22nd, 20122:23 pm
Kudos, blog, for not biting PL’s bait
March 22nd, 20122:24 pm
Darn, Wes Helms retired one year too early…he should have stuck around.
Guess the deer and birds need to seek out newer ground.
The way I figure it, he probably hasn’t been able to turkey hunt since high school being that turkey season starts in March/April in most states. I wonder if he will get into it now.
You just proved my point, scoots. You probably have never had a sopapilla in your grits-eating life, yet “sopapillaporium” is forever in your brain.
Win For 10 won’t catch on beyond the blog. It’s not interesting.
March 22nd, 20122:25 pm
PL does not use the Southern accented, Gimpah, he uses Gimper, if memory serves ……..
March 22nd, 20122:26 pm
I’m glad Chipper will retire having played his whole career with the Braves. He’s a World Series Champion so if the Braves don’t win it this year for his final season wouldn’t be so bad.
March 22nd, 20122:27 pm
Leadoff double for Hinske…
Good Job Mr. Jones. Now you can start your farewell tour. Hope that the body holds up and allows you to play to the last out.
March 22nd, 2012
PL does not use the Southern accented, Gimpah, he uses Gimper, if memory serves ……..
Thats a big 10-4…..thanks …lol
Jimmy, no, to obvious and overplayed…Every year Woodstock has a “Send one to the Chipper” campaign for recycling christmas trees, so kinda been there done that.
March 22nd, 20122:28 pm
Heyward flies to right, Hinske advances to third…
Ross lines out to Nolasco – 2 out…
March 22nd, 20122:29 pm
Heard the retirement news On the broadcast. Thought it was for 2012. Glad chipper is playing one more year. Win for 10.
kenhotlanta….Mothers Finest (after Another Mother Further album came out) was a great freaking concert. I remember the student union bringing them on campus for a free student concert at college.
Do you remember the dive bar “Hedgin’s” close to Roswell and Piedmont when The Satellites were pretty much the house band. Might recall they became The Georgia Satellites.
This towns had some real rockin’ bands in all the places of it’s heyday….Now Buckhead is a congested shopping mall, no flavor or character…and Atlanta is one big, cookie cutter suburb of itself. Everybody’s afraid to go out and drink and have a good time. Or if they do, they think THAT is the good time. A bunch of overpriced so called bars and restaurants. Who the hell can afford to go out? Don’t forget the old Buckhead Saloon. See a band, drink cheap, walk next door to Limelight for some ladies. Glory Days!
Sophia, jealousy is unbecoming of a woman…
Bat actually inadvertently came up with Win for Ten but dropped it as he was headed to the airport (to have banners made).
That’ll teach me to rush. I hope you don’t expect any royalties from the banners because none will be forthcoming.
I wonder if tiger would be willing to fly them, he’s a lot closer that the Destin airport.
March 22nd, 20122:30 pm
Tyler beats out a slow roller in front of the plate, 4-2…
March 22nd, 20122:31 pm
bravesfaninok does not use the Southern accented, Gimpah
us southerners say our R’s. you must be thinking of a northeast accent.
Finally, after two hard hit balls, the Rev beats out a squibbed to drive in the run.
Me Love Chipper!
March 22nd, 20122:32 pm
Let’s go Bravos! Get it to the WS for Chipper!
March 22nd, 20122:33 pm
Beachy strikes out (after many fouls) to end the fourth, Braves trail 4-2…
March 22nd, 20122:34 pm
Mothers Finest (after Another Mother Further album came out) was a great freaking concert. I remember the student union bringing them on campus for a free student concert at college.
I heard them at college also. Great concert but i think I suffered minor hearing loss that I never regained after that concert. it was in a gym…man it was loud.
March 22nd, 20122:35 pm
Man, Alabama getting pounded by storms/ rain. Whole length of the state. Headed slowly east.
Looks like a rainy Friday Bat.
Tim Wilson (the southern comedian) explains the southern accents of different areas in the south.
March 22nd, 20122:36 pm
Lee, probably heard in the same gym
Bat, none expected…But when they do, how about a donation to your favorite charity?
As for tiger, that is one heck of an idea, and to go one further, he could probably get his bullpen buddies to hold up a banner at home games.
Foul pop out to Ross…
March 22nd, 20122:37 pm
Hanley bounces out to Tyler…
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
