Chipper Jones gets some love on Kiss Cam

Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones appeared on the Kiss Cam during Wednesday night's game at Marlin Park in Miami, so teammate Freddie Freeman planted one on Chipper's cheek. Your browser does not support iframes. Although it was a bit awkward, it also seemed appropriate in a way, with Jones playing his final game at Marlin Park before he retires at the end of the...

Braves' Medlen continues blistering run

There's no slowing Kris Medlen. In pregame warm-ups. Running his mouth in the clubhouse. And especially on the mound. He's a constant blur of motion and energy, which he has harnessed to become the best starter in the majors right now. Atlanta's boyish right-hander remained hotter than a Miami summer, adding to his unbeaten streak and growing legend Wednesday night...

Legend of Kris Medlen continues

There's no slowing Kris Medlen. In pregame warm-ups. Running his mouth in the clubhouse. And especially on the mound. He's a constant blur of motion and energy, which he's harnessed to become the best starter in the majors right now. Atlanta's boyish right-hander remained hotter than a Miami summer, adding to his unbeaten streak and growing legend on Wednesday...

Chipper Jones appears on Marlins Kiss Cam, receives smooches from teammates (video)

The Great Big Good Bye Farewell Tour of one Chipper Jones keeps on churning, as the Atlanta Braves made a stop this week in Miami for a three-games series with the Marlins. On the final game of the series on Wednesday night, the Marlins organization paid its respects to Chipper and his marvelous, Hall of [...]

Braves showing minor improvements with RISP

Were beginning to see the signs, ever so slight. A single here. A double there. There were two ninth-inning hits to tie Tuesday nights game before the Braves lost 4-3 in the 10th. Braves hitters seem to be waking from the comatose state theyve stumbled around in with runners in scoring position, but they continue to have the worst average in the majors with their teammates standing...

Atlanta Braves catcher Brian McCann was out of the lineup once again Monday night.  While he’s still dealing with the tendinitis in his right hamstring that’s sidelined him since Saturday, Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez is hoping McCann can return to action tonight, reports Tom Green of MLB.com: "It doesn't hurt him to hit," Gonzalez said...

Fans honor Chipper Jones with corn maze

Fox Sports South has brought us this tribute for retiring Atlanta Braves legend Chipper Jones...his likeness cut into a corn maze. The corn maze was created by Braves fans Misty and Lamar Duren of Walnut Grove, Georgia. Creating corn mazes is nothing new for them, and last year, they made a maze to honor Atlanta company Coca-Cola, celebrating its 125th anniversary. This is pretty...

Is Erasmo Ramirez the Next Kris Medlen?

The current talk of the National League is a reliever turned starter with a small body type dominating the league with three solid pitches and, specifically, a killer changeup. Kris Medlen’s season has been one of the more interesting storylines this year, which has to do with both his impressive performance as a starter and the fact that he has done so for a contending team. In...

Freddie Freeman, Dan Uggla Pucker Up, Embarrass Chipper Jones on Kiss Cam (Video)

When it comes to the Kiss Cam, no one is safe. Back in July, President Barack Obama learned the lesson. During Wednesday's game against the Marlins, Braves third baseman Chipper Jones was the latest one to suffer embarrassment via the Kiss Cam. And it was as a result of his teammates. In the seventh inning of the game, the Kiss Cam shifted to Jones and teammates Freddie Freeman...

Marlins go for second victory against Braves

When Kris Medlen moved from the bullpen to make a start against the Miami Marlins seven weeks ago, the Atlanta Braves weren't sure exactly what to expect. Every time he takes the mound now, they expect a win. The Braves go for a 21st straight victory in a start by Medlen in Wednesday night's series finale in Miami. Atlanta's four-game winning streak was snapped Tuesday...

Edwar Cabrera, Patrick Corbin: The Next Kris Medlen?

I often like to say that success is the result of talent meeting opportunity. That’s what makes Kris Medlen‘s breakout so surprising. The talent has always been there. After a late start to his pitching career (he was converted to the position in college), Medlen has quickly mastered his craft. His control has always been impeccable, walking just 2.13 batters per nine innings...

Medlen wins again, Braves top Marlins

MIAMI (AP) -- Kris Medlen and Chipper Jones found themselves linked in baseball's record books with Whitey Ford and Lou Gehrig. More importantly to the Atlanta Braves, they just kept rolling along. Medlen pitched eight innings of four-hit ball and the Braves won his start for the 21st straight time, beating the Miami Marlins 3-0 on Wednesday night. Jones went 1 for 4 in his...

Braves 3, Marlins 0

Kris Medlen pitched eight innings of four-hit ball and the Atlanta Braves won his start for the 21st straight time, beating the Miami Marlins 3-0 on Wednesday night. Medlen (9-1) lost the first two starts of his career in 2009. He hasn't taken a loss in any of his 26 starts since, with the Braves prevailing in the last 21 of those - making them the first team since the New York...

Chipper Jones Receives Rod, Reel and Fishing Gear After Owning Marlins Throughout Career

Chipper Jones has feasted on the Marlins throughout his career. Through 244 games against the club, the Braves third baseman unloaded 40 home runs, 165 RBIs while hitting .299. He's notched the most games, blasts and RBIs against the Marlins than any other player. So it was only fitting the Marlins gave Jones a rod, a reel and fishing gear as a parting gift for his retirement...
