Found November 14, 2012 on Next Impulse Sports:
Earlier in May of this year Braves third baseman took a groundball from B.J. Upton off of the leg and was diagnosed with a “left leg contusion.” We can only assume that retirement is a little boring for Chipper so today he decided to Tweet out a picture of the “contusion,” and it is horrible. Y’all remember that line drive from Bj Upton I took off the ankle this year? Be glad I left the bandage on!!!

Chipper has JFK conspiracy theories

How is the former MVP spending his first days of retirement? By watching 'JFK' and live-tweeting what he thinks really happened in Dallas on that infamous day. 

Chipper Jones...Conspiracy Theorist

Even now and then, I forget what it is that I love about the internet.  Then, well, and then Chipper Jones goes and watches a movie from more than 20 years ago.  And tweets about it.Sure, I realize I'm late to the game on this one, but Wednesday night, the eight-time All-Star sat down and watched "JFK" on  REELZ and decided to voice his displeasure with, of all things...

Jones Tweets massive midseason bruise

James Carr @jamescarr89 In the city of Atlanta, Chipper Jones doesn't have to do very much to impress anymore. He played his entire career in Atlanta, set records, won titles, and is one of the biggest fan-favorites in Braves' lore. Jones retired this season, surely on his way to the Hall of Fame in five years, in part because his body couldn't take the wear and tear...

Chipper Jones tweets picture of bruised leg

If you look up “true professional” in your proverbial dictionary, you just might find a picture of the recently-retired, former Atlanta Braves third baseman Larry “Chipper” Jones.  Chipper was as consistent as they come from both sides of the plate.  In fact, he hit .303 from the left side and .304 from the right.  The no-doubt first ballot Hall of Famer finished with...

Chipper Jones sufferd an incredibly nasty leg bruise earlier in the season (Picture)

Back in May, Chipper Jones spent a short time on the disabled list after he took a B.J. Upton one-hopper directly to the lower leg. The injury was described as a “left leg contusion,” which is a fancy phrase for a bruise. If you criticized Chipper at the time for missing games because of a bruise, you take it back. You take it back right now. Jones tweeted the photo you see above...

Chipper Jones shows off nasty bruise

Nastylicious. We’ve seen our fair share of gnarly bruises around here (see Lepisto, Sami and Crain, Jesse), so when Braves 3rd baseman Chipper Jones recently tweeted out this photo of his horrifically bruised left ankle—the end result of a BJ Upton line drive off the leg early in the 2012 season—it really shouldn’t have made anyone squeamish in the least, seeing that we...

Chipper Jones Tweets Gross Picture of His Leg Injury

Chipper Jones took a trip to the disabled list in May after taking a line drive to the ankle. I’m pretty sure skin isn’t supposed to ever be that shade of purple, but hey, what do I know? See the photo here >>

Chipper Jones tweeted a beautifully bruised ankle

Chipper Jones tweeted "Y'all remember that line drive from Bj Upton I took off the ankle this year? Be glad I left the bandage on!!! Yuck!" No, don't actually recall that play at all. Jones... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~ http://www.bobsblitz.com

Upton is being courted by many teams so far this winter, but two have jumped to the forefront as the favorites: the Phillies and Braves, NL East rivals.

Braves turn sights to signing B.J. Upton

At one point the Atlanta Braves had hopes of signing both Torii Hunter and B.J. Upton. With Hunter signing a two year deal with the Detroit Tigers, the Braves are turning their sights solely to Upton.

Report: Phillies and B.J. Upton Met Earlier This Week

  B.J. Upton is one of the hottest free-agents on the market this winter and it seem's like he is wanted everywhere.

But according to a report by Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, Upton and the Phillies met earlier this week....

Phillies Offseason Plan: Corey’s Version

My offseason plan looks different than Pat’s and Eric’s. They each outlined under-the-radar solutions to the Phillies’ problems, moves that could make the team younger and not put the Phils over the luxury tax. Despite his deficiencies, B.J. Upton is worth a five-year deal for the Phillies. I took a different approach. The Phillies need to improve, and I’m more concerned...

Inbox: 11-12-12

Every time I read the Braves Inbox (used to be called "Mailbag" but I guess no one sends postal mail anymore), I always answer the questions in my head before reading Bowman's replies. This was a fun off-season project last year and I'll do my best to keep up this year. Here's last week's inbox, and here's this week's... What is the possibility...
