PLAYERS: Chipper Jones
TEAMS: Atlanta Braves
If Chipper Jones remains healthy this season and a games-played vesting option kicks in for 2013, he'll undoubtedly play again next year. "You can make that assumption," said the veteran Braves third baseman, seated in front of his locker just prior to the first full day of workouts at Champion Stadium on Saturday.

Fan gets Chipper Jones tattoo

Alright, enough with the whole "Chipper Jones is fat" thing. Yeah, yeah...we all saw the picture. Matter of fact, Jones did too, telling The Atlanta Journal-Constitution: “I’m also fat now, from what I hear,” Jones said, smiling as he winced while taking his jersey over his sunburned arms. “I’m a little worried, this is the first time I’ve ever been called...

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...

Braves new SS Pastornicky 'ready for big leagues'

Tyler Pastornicky expects to play a lot more for Atlanta this season than he did in his major league debut last year. He is penciled in as the Braves starting shortstop.

Dan Uggla Player Projection No. 44

Key Stats: Dan Uggla saved his season from July 5th through August 15th last year with a 33-game hitting streak. Without that hot stretch Uggla would have finished last year with a .194 batting average. As it were his average was still weighted heavily to the times that he wasn’t on a 33-game hitting streak last year as he hit just .236 for the season. Streaks are a part of baseball...

Michael Bourn's speed adds new dimension

Im curious to see what Michael Bourn does this season. The guy is a blur, as fast as one of those superheroes in my 6-year-olds favorite cartoons. Bourn has led the NL in steals three straight years and he just turned 29 in December. He bunts. He slashes. He runs down everything in centerfield. He gives the Braves a Lightning McQueen for the first time since a young and reckless...
