PLAYERS: Chipper Jones
TEAMS: Atlanta Braves

Via NESN:

Chipper Jones is an eight-time National League All-Star, and he’s quickly becoming a Twitter All-Star as well.

Since joining the Twittersphere earlier this year, Jones has been a little wacky in his tweets, often catching his followers by surprise with his zany antics. Whether it’s speaking some weird slang language he seems to have developed on his own or tweeting out a photo of a nasty bruise, you simply never know what’s going to go from Chipper’s brain to his fingertips and eventually out to the world.

Jones seemed to get a little bit more serious than usual on Wednesday night, though, when he took a stance on the always controversial John F. Kennedy assassination. The former Braves third baseman was apparently watching the movie JFK, and he wasn’t too pleased with the way things are portrayed, which resulted in quite the Twitter rant.

Check out Jones’ series of tweets below:

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 Incredibly Disgusting Bruise Pic

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...

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 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...

Catcher Gerald Laird will get $3 million for his two-year deal with the Atlanta Braves, and could earn up to $750,000 in performance bonuses if he plays more than expected.

The 33-year-old Laird played for AL champion Detroit this past season, batting .282 with two...

Braves Notes: Kimbrel deserves shot at Cy Young

Craig Kimbrel had an amazing, record-breaking season, so its just wrong hes not among the three finalists for the NL Cy Young that will be awarded today. It will go to either Los Angeles Clayton Kershaw, Washingtons Gio Gonzalez or New Yorks R.A. Dickey, but Kimbrel deserved to be among the finalists, if not the winner. I know, relievers never receive much consideration for baseballs...

Is Michael Bourn worth $20 million a year?

If your team is in the free agent market, there are a few things you root for. One would be this slugging god of a player who can hit the ball over the deepest fences. A Fielder-type of guy. Another on the wish list is a stud pitcher like Greinke or even Sanchez. And perhaps you would want a stud closer such as Soriano. For most fans, signing a player like Michael Bourn would not...

B.J. Upton a Brave?

Upton stole 31 bases in 37 attempts last season with Tampa Bay The Atlanta Braves had free agent center fielder, B.J. Upton, at Turner Field this past week, and they are reportedly very interested in his services. But would Upton be a good fit?

Atlanta Braves interested in Cody Ross

According to a Major League source close to Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports, the Atlanta Braves are looking to add an outfielder bat and are interested in veteran outfielder Cody Ross.

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.

Are the San Francisco 49ers in store for a blowup season?

On the surface you could look at all the recent success for the San Francisco 49ers and easily assume they’re well on their way to being perennial contenders for a long time to come. But despite their 36-11-1 record over the last three years which included a Super Bowl trip in 2012 and NFC Championship game appearances in both 2011 and 2013 under Jim Harbaugh, the team seems to...
