Alison was over last night watching the NLCS game 7, and we were discussing how we're cheering our hearts out for Omar ~personally~ (just Google his face!!) but not necessarily for the Tigers...

Chipper Jones was a great leader in the Braves clubhouse
Chipper Jones was the Atlanta Braves’ unquestioned leader and player’s mouthpiece. Now that he has retired who will fill that void?
Catcher Brian McCann was the consensus choice, but his injury situation will either take him elsewhere or keep him on the shelf a considerable amount of time next season. Nix McCann.
