Chipper Jones put on some weight

Chipper Jones reported to the Atlanta Braves camp and something was noticeably different.  Apparently Chipper decided to go on the same off season diet as Boris Diaw.   Jones is in the final year of a guaranteed contract, and thus we have no doubt he will shed some of these lbs before the end of spring training via Deadspin Article found on: Cosby Sweaters

Chipper Jones’ Drastic New, Chubby Look

2011 Spring Training Atlanta Braves’ legend Chipper Jones is about to turn 40 years old this April, and still plans to man the hotcorner for the only Major League team he has played for since 1993. As a 40-year old, it is very easy to put on some weight if you aren’t conscious of your dieting and exercise. Or, ya know, if you aren’t a professional athlete. Jones, listed as...

Laron Landry Getting Chipper Jones Fat This Offseason

Our buddy Jake at Funny Athlete Tweets sent word today that Laron Landry, better known as the NFL strong safety most likely to have a carer as a member of the Chippendales, might be letting himself go after just two months away from the sport. Doesn’t surprise us. Always seemed like that guy was a one-year wonder. A guy who gets jacked on P90X and turns to flab six months later...

2012 player preview: Yohan Flande

Ah yes, Yohan Flande. He's also known by the English translation of his name, "AAA roster filler". But let me be serious for a minute. Flande isn't in the top ten starting pitchers on Atlanta's depth chart, and he's really just....a warm body to fill out the AAA rotation.You can do a lot worse than Flande, though. In 137 innings for Gwinnett, split between...

Hudson looks for fresh start after back surgery

Tim Hudson remembers when he was the young gun in the clubhouse. Now, he's the old dude, looking a bit out of place on one of baseball's most promising pitching staffs. But don't count him out just yet. At 36, Hudson isn't quite ready to pass the torch to all those hot young prospects on the Atlanta Braves. Quite the contrary. After undergoing back surgery over...

Glimpse of the Future (part-2): 2014 Braves Pitching

By Jim Pratt The 2014 pitching staff will feature many familiar names as the Atlanta Braves continue to dip into their deep farm system after the eventual loss of Tim Hudson to retirement and Jair Jurrjens to trade or free agency. It’s difficult to say the pitching staff will be better after those losses because of the youth of the arms that will replace them, but there’s no...
