Come on Chipper. I am trying not to get furious, but that fudge is a season changer

Would Michael Jordan make a good like that in a crucial game?

Would Derek Jeter make that throw?

This is why although great, Chipper is not a champion.

Kiss this one good bye. Med is not sharp. Heyward pulls back a home run. Chipper is just being chipper. Prado can’t move the runner over then misplays the ball in left. He should have caught that ball. But it doesn’t matter. Cards will chip away, and the braves will do nothing.

I’d say unbelievable, but actually a meltdown inning like this is pretty standard for the Braves in October.

We’ll see if the bats have any fight.

That should be all the Cards need to win this game. Thanks Chipper for the error and thanks Bourn for not getting a good running jump on that fly ball. Catching it flatfooted guarantees that you won’t make a good throw to the plate.

That’s how you hit with RISP.

Funny to read all of those on here saying Med was ’sharp’ today. he is all over the place. Nerves. Too much pressure because he knows there will be no run support. Then Chipper does his thing, which is to not deliver in big games, and the season is over.

Waffle House or Bust

How does Meds stink? That was on Chipper. How do you show up to this game and not be 100% mentally ready in the field? Dang Larry.

Two of three runs on Medlen are unearned. But if Chipper makes the throw, it looked like it’d be a double play, to me.

3 runs in a start. And today, only 1 run is earned. Come on guys.

Differen feel? LOL Sure seems like the same braves to me.
How ironic it will be that chipper is the reason for his final game as a brave and typical playoff loss.

Only way CJ can make up for that is hit one out next time up. Otherwise, he owns the horse collar.

Georgia fans give up in the first half….and Braves fan give up all the time. Thankfully, the Georgia players and the Braves players do not give up. Just a tough inning for Medlen. Go get ‘em Braves.

Lance

Come one folks…..the Braves have what it takes to come back and win it. Errors happen – it’s how the team picks themselves up and makes up for and avenges the errors that matters. Chipper and the Braves have the ability and talent to make them pay. Go Braves

sid's bream

It’s not over yet. Medlen is still pitching well and Lohse looks hittable. If not for the error, it would still be 2-0. I know there are nightmares of the errors that cost the braves against the Giants, but Chipper won’t do that again.

You cant blame any of that on Medlen. he should have been out of the inning on zero. the Molina at bat was a great example of things we dont do.

Chipper Jones has looked clueless t the plate so far and that error will coast the Braves the game and the season. How IRONICthe game being ost by a guy who is retiring after this game.

Tampa Gator

Chipper said he was not nervous before the game……but maybe he got nervous when the game started. Chipper makes that play 999 times out of 1000 times. I hope the Braves do not lose on that play…..it would be a terrible way for him to go out after a hall of fame career. Go Braves.

It’s called choking. In all of the post season games, what has Chipper done. I think he had one decent game against a sad Cubs team. The rest have been horrible.
