CHIPPER SHOULD HAVE RETIRED IN GAME 162. WE ARE OUT NOW BECAUSE O F HIM
Meds picks a great day to stink.
Well, that error may unfortunately haunt the Braves badly.
Thanks Chipper. Your probably going to screw the team over in your last game.

Kris lot of balls
That’s on Chipper there… darn.
braves best fielding % in the NL and a stupid error from chipper totally changes this game.
Cardinals (Chipper): 2
Cards 2, Chipper 2
How big does Bourn being left at first look now? Hurts badly
Come on Chipper. I am trying not to get furious, but that fudge is a season changer
Waffle House or Bust
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.
Juan Francisco would have… no, nevermind, he probably wouldn’t have.
watching these chokers for 15 years.
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.
Braves 2, Chipper 2
October 5th, 20126:12 pm
here go the lead
Totally agree with visit to the mound.
Dangit. 3 runs in an inning. Medlen had only done that once before
nothing good ever happens when you give a team 5 outs.
God Made an Error
Chop (to the playoffs)
Damn that was a big error…
Think he cares? He has hunting and hookers waiting.
Chipper’s awful throwing error yeilded three runs! That’s tough, but it’s the truth! He needs to redeem himself for that gaff!
should be a zero inning and they score 3. chipper owes us BIG time!!!
October 5th, 20126:13 pm
Cardinels are cashing in on the error
Goodbye lead…..goodbye season.
Pissed off at Not nervous, doesn’t care Chipper.
Great job Chipper. One of the reasons we got here, and the reason we exit.
All that means is that Chipper will make the Curds pay when it matters most!!!
Give it away in 2012…lol…some things never change
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.
Wow Chipper. Not surprised though. It’s a cruel game and I was waiting for something weird to happen in this one gme stupid ass thing going on.
With this anemic offense this game is over.
Yeah…..Medlen really sticks……horrible error on that double play ball….all his fault. Really stupid post….but typical of so many Braves “fans”
Braves need an answer here. We cannot go 1-2-3
well, until they can turn this around … Chipper’s last day as a Braves is down to 18 outs
Time to pick Chipper up.
CHIPPER JONES PATHETIC. CANT HIT. AND COST US 3 RUNS. AND OUR SEASON.
SICK OF IT MAN.
THANK GOD WE WONT SEE HIM NEXT YEAR.
Damn the Cards can hit with RISP
” Medlen had only done that once before”
Medlen? WTF you talking about?
God, I feel sick……….
What a great way to possibly end a career.
October 5th, 20126:14 pm
Chipper leaving town as the goat. Bye.
Game is far from over…relax people.
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.
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.
guess the Chipper love fest is over?
Good to see the wisdom of Waffles for Brains gracing us with his special brand of hatred and cranial ineptitude…
The visiting team is what a true offense looks like….must be nice.
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.
October 5th, 20126:15 pm
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.
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
That doesn’t happen if Mac plays…..
I can’t believe that the last memory Chipper will leave us with is a horrible throw… he’ll redeem himself.
This is why Braves fans are the way they are. How often does Chipper do that??
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.
Veer…you’re such a drama queen..shut up already.
Meds pitchs are up in the strike zone. Game over.
We gave them an inch and they kicked the whole door down. Need to get ‘em back right here.
October 5th, 20126:16 pm
Braves score 2 runs in the 7th or 8th and Braves win!
Brave4life-1995 All over again
Braves need to win this or this would be a terrible way to go out CHipper
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.
Braves = choke.
Look Its October and the Braves are choking.
I’ve been a Braves fan since 66…Its getting harder every year to continue.
But we’ll get’um
Bad error for Chipper, but Meds wasn’t sharp that inning.
Now it’s back to the same old braves
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.
Nice start, FF!!!
We were lucky to escape that inning with only three runs. That had a blowout written all over it.
October 5th, 2012
Obviously you haven’t watch Braves baseball the last week.
CHIPPER SHOULD GET STANDING OVATION AT THE END OF GAME FOR COSTING US THE GAME
Braves 2 Chipper 2 Cards 1
Jesus…didn’t expect Chip to pull an Escobar mental fart!
yeah i aint blaming meds for that. let’s go!
Let’s not waste this lead off hitter please.
let’s see…how many ways can we waste this runner?
October 5th, 20126:17 pm
Heart of the Braves order (Uggla, Ross) coming up!
Chipper has a great career and will leave town with everyone remembering how he gave away his last post season game.
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.

Lord please don’t let that Chipper error be the thing we have to think about throughout the off season. Don’t let this happen to us fans.

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.
@phil-get a life! One earned run on 2 hits. Not all his fault!
Sad irony that it is Chipper who made the play that likely ended his last postseason.
And we come back with a hit.
Make lohse work
October 5th, 20126:18 pm
Come on blue- where has that call been for Medlen
You are an idiot…..jezzzzzz. You are talking about a hall of fame player that you can’t even carry a jock strap for…
October 5th, 20126:19 pm
Lay off of Chipper guys. If not for him, we aren’t playing this game. He’s human. But he still has a lot to give in this game.
October 5th, 20126:20 pm
All that money for Uggla and 19 homers less than 250 BA and less than 80 RBI. This guy better have a MVP season net year!
Let’s go ROSS!!!
Ross I love you. . .
