The future Hall of Fame third baseman spent his night analyzing tonight’s action through a set of thoroughly bizarre selfies. We don’t have much to...

Chipper Jones Thinks Florida Would Have Trouble With Stetson, Which Didn’t Have A Football Program Until 2013

Not much is going right for Florida football right now. The Gators lost to Missouri on Saturday, 42-13, despite holding the Tigers to 119 yards of total offense. Head coach Will Muschamp’s hot seat is on fire, and with several tough games on the schedule down the stretch, the Gators may flirt with missing a bowl game for the second straight season. On Saturday, former Atlanta Braves...

Braves begin offseason amidst change

On August 1st, the Braves were 6 games over .500 and had lost in spectacular fashion to the offense-challenged San Diego Padres on a night that the team once again trotted out the struggling Mike Minor amid the worry that his downhill slide could be costly to Atlanta down the stretch. As it would turn out, Mike Minor was only one part of the behemoth that kept the Braves out of the...

Derek Jeter Tour Overblown?

When you are rich, people just give you thingsWe are winding down the Derek Jeter era for the Yankees Major League Baseball world and many are asking the question of whether the Love Tour is necessary.  To me ... no.  While Jeter is a Yankee legend and one of the better players of our time, this is much too much. First off, the tour itself.  I hate them, unless you are really...

John Rocker has agreed to join the cast of ‘Survivor’

When you think of former Atlanta Braves pitcher John Rocker, the first word that comes to mind is “controversy”. As we all know, Rocket made some disturbing comments in a Sports Illustrated article back in 1999 which still follows him to this day. They say controversy sells and a popular show hopes that remains true for Rocker. According to Entertainment Weekly, Rocker has agreed...

Chopcast: Braves in thick of tight NL playoff race

The last time the Atlanta Braves found themselves with their backs against the wall in a playoff race, the foundation was different. Chipper Jones and Brian McCann were still in uniform. So were Martin Prado and Michael Bourn. The pitching staff deferred to the likes of Tim Hudson and Kris Medlen. Those names, for a variety of reasons, do not make up the corps of the 2014 Braves...

A brief recap and a few more thoughts on the trade deadline

I had the Pirates game on last night and was dozing off throughout the whole game, but my one main takeaway was this: Of course, hours after the Pirates fail to trade for pitching help, Jeff Locke gives up a game-breaking home run to Andy Marte. Andy Marte, you might recall, was once the successor to Chipper Jones in Atlanta, then was dealt to Boston for Edgar Renteria, then was...

Like Her Dad, Josie Canseco Loves Social Media

Confession time.  I’m like a lot of you…I’ve poked some fun at Jose Canseco online.  But, as time has passed, I’ve come to realize something. Unlike a number of former big leaguers out there on the Twitters (looking your way John Rocker and Chipper Jones), I think the former American League MVP actually gets it.  I mean, dude is sitting at more than half a million followers...

Who Will Get the Next Retirement Tour?

This is the fourth season in five in which we’ve experienced — or for some, endured — a retirement tour. First was Bobby Cox in 2010, and then Chipper Jones, Mariano Rivera and Derek Jeter have all been feted by their peers around the game. That begs the question, who’s next? Well, if our very […]
