Wait, so Chipper can play 20 seasons in the big leagues no problem, but can’t handle a few twitter trolls?
Believe it, Chipper Jones has bowed out from twitter and it’s all because of the trolls. Twitter weeps.
No more twitter for me. Said I'd do it for one year and the time is up. Too much hate and too many trolls. Much love to Braves country! Xo

Funny enough, Jones has yet to suspend his account…it’s still active. I get the feeling this is kinda just some fake ‘rapper-esque’ retirement threat and he’ll be back to the wacky, wonderful Chipper we’ve come to know via twitter.
Who could forget this gem from Chipper on immigration.

The Atlanta Braves rode the bats of both Upton brothers on Wednesday night as they cruised on to win their 13th straight game. A 6-3 Braves win over the Washington Nationals gives them the longest win streak since the 2000 Braves won 15 in a row. The Cardinals, Rockies, Phillies, and now the Nationals have all been swept by the Braves during the win streak. Atlanta got another...
Former Atlanta Braves star Chipper Jones has been one of the more outspoken athletes on Twitter over the past year or so, but we may have heard the last of him. On Wednesday morning, Jones announced that he is done tweeting. No more twitter for me. Said I'd do it for one year and the [...]
Earlier in the season, after they started 12-1, the Atlanta Braves had the best record in the National League. But after following up that hot start with less than stellar baseball, they tumbled a few notches down in the NL standings and have remained there most of the season.
With Monday night’s 3-2 victory over the Nationals, their eleventh straight win, the Braves once again...
Atlanta Braves relief pitcher Luis Ayala was minding his own business on Wednesday night, chilling alongside his fellow relievers in the bullpen when his teammate, outfielder Justin Upton mashed an offering from Washington Nationals right-hander Fernando Abad during the top of the 7th inning with the score tied at two apiece. As the ball came […]The post Sitting in bullpen, Luis...
Braves right fielder Jason Heyward had to be replaced in the early innings Tuesday night in Washington as he appeared to feel some pain in his neck after a swing in the first inning. He initially stayed in the game but was later replaced while on defense by Evan Gattis (who took left field while Justin Upton moved from left to right).
The Braves have announced that Heyward has a...

Here are three things we learned from the Braves' 2-1 win over the Nationals securing Atlanta's 12th consecutive victory.
1. The Braves bullpen capped this crucial win with a flurry of dominance
Clinging to a 2-1 lead late in the game, Jordan Walden and Craig Kimbrel erased all doubts regarding the outcome, striking out the side in the eighth and ninth innings.
Right fielder Jason Heyward left Atlanta's game against the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night because of a muscle strain in his neck.
The Braves say he's day to day.
Leading off the game, Heyward was visited by manager Fredi Gonzalez after two pitches, and play was delayed for a couple of minutes.
After Gonzalez returned to the dugout, Heyward swung at the next pitch...
Jason Heyward singled and Justin Upton doubled in a three-run eighth inning Wednesday night in the Atlanta Braves' sweep-capping 6-3 win over the Washington Nationals, a game played nicely by both sides one night after a fastball to Bryce Harper's thigh cleared both benches.
Upton also homered, and Kris Medlen (9-10) allowed three runs and three hits over seven innings as...
I'm leaving the pink. I like it. This article was sent to us by:Hmmm...Davey getting more respect than Fredi as one of the best managers in the NL. SERIOUSLY BA. Get real.— Kris L.

Say this for the Braves and Nationals they added a little intrigue Tuesday night to a division race that’s all but over.
The NL East rivals got testy after a benches-clearing shouting match broke out between Bryce Harper and Julio Teheran in the fifth inning but it proved just a sideshow in another Braves victory. The Braves hung onto their 2-1 lead for four more innings to win...
Things got ugly during tonight’s Nationals-Braves game after Bryce Harper admired his 437-foot home run just a little too long.

Braves’ pitcher Julio Teheran decided Harper was guilty of showing him up and decided Harper must pay the iron price. This made Harper upset and he began barking at Teheran as he moseyed on down to first base....

The Nationals are in free fall as the pitching and hitting that was around to make the playoffs last year is nowhere to be found this year. The Nats are 14-and-a-half behind the Braves and are staring a sweep right in the face.
So, what happens after Bryce Harper homers off Julio Teheran the second time he comes to the plate...??/
You've got to hand it to the Atlanta Braves: they are stomping a mudhole in the collective ass of the NL East. The Braves swept the Nationals in DC for the second time this year, finishing with a 6-3 win on Wednesday night. Atlanta is 15.5 games up on the second place Nats, who are 50% closer to last place (the Marlins are 25.5 out) than first place. Against the NL East, Atlanta...
