The Chipper Jones-Taylor Higgins Wedding Registry…Yes, I Bought Them A Gift

  I remember the day in December 2012 when I broke the news that Chipper Jones was dating Playboy model Taylor Higgins, who went by Lexi Ray as a nude model name. It was a perfect storm scenario. Chip’s MLB career had just ended and he was starting his retirement life — at 40 — like many of us would die for. He made $168,552,133 during his MLB career (yes, there were a...

Chipper Jones Wedding Planning, Sam Dekker’s Girlfriend & Kaymer’s Gallery

  I took a day off Not kidding, I didn’t look at Twitter or anything related to BC on Sunday. Nothing. Zero. And it felt so damn good. The sun was out. It was warm (43-44). The snow was melting. I heard birds chirping. I had an extra hour of daylight. I fell asleep on the couch around 10. That was one of the best days off I’ve had in the last year or so…and there have been...

Katherine Webb Sighting, Chipper Jones Skiing & Chuck Meets Hoodie

Cubs want special construction hours So you have the Cubs trying to finish the bleacher renovation project before Opening Day. The winter has been brutal and the crews are behind schedule.

Chipper Jones apologizes for Sandy Hook tweet

Chipper Jones is the latest athlete to take the Twitter apology route after he jumped on the widely-debunked conspiracy bandwagon this weekend. Jones apparently learned of some new information regarding the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting (perhaps he saw this video?) and sent out a tweet Friday indicating he believed the shooting was a hoax: As you...Read More

Chipper Jones apologizes after asinine tweet about Sandy Hook

There might not anything more annoying out there than truthers whether it’s the 9/11 one’s or someone who actually believes the travesty that happened at Sandy Hook Elementary was some inside job conspired by the government. With that in mind, we have former Braves third baseman Chipper Jones making an ass out of himself with […]

Chipper Jones Upsets Sandy Hook Families

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…someone needs to get Chipper Jones off the internet. Friday night, the Atlanta Braves legend channeled his inner conspiracy theorist again (more on that in second) and tweeted some dumb stuff about the December 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre that ended with 20 young children and 6 adults dead. Perhaps recognizing his error...

2015 TOC top ten: third basemen

Third base is kind of a weird position right now. There’s no real dominant force anymore. Sure, you have plenty of guys that are quite good, but that dominant Chipper Jones/David Wright type of guy really doesn’t exist right now. Well, maybe he doesn’t exist – there are plenty of young third basemen that look like they’re about to make The Leap into that elite level of...

Photos: Chipper Jones Analyzed The National Championship Game On Twitter Via Absurd Selfies

Millions of Twitter users spent their night discussing tonight’s Ohio State win over Oregon for the program’s eighth national title, but we don’t know of anyone else who did it quite like Atlanta Braves great Chipper Jones. 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...

Markakis: Signing with Braves 'just felt right'

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...

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...
