Braves Win; Chipper Struggles
The Braves got back on the winning track last night against the St. Louis Cardinals. However, the same old story continued for the 3rd baseman for the Braves in Chipper Jones. The guy just doesn’t want to hustle! I’m not sure why when every game is so important to the Braves right now.
First off, he once again flied to centerfield with a runner at 2nd base and no outs. He continues to do this and swings at pitches early in the count to get his fly ball to centerfield. All you have to do is put the ball in play on the right side of the field and allow that runner to get to 3rd base with 1 out. It’s not getting done and you have to hold Bobby Cox responsible for continuing to allow this to happen. You must give up yourself sometimes and it doesn’t matter who you are or who you think you are.
Then later on Chipper hits a towering fly ball that hits off the wall deep in the outfield. Runners were on base and sprinting to the plate. The throw goes into homeplate trying to get a base runner out and it was unsuccessful. However, the non-hustling Chipper Jones only manages to get to 2nd base on the play. There is no excuses for this and I refuse to purchase any more tickets to Braves Games as long as Chipper doesn’t hustle and Bobby Cox is the manager in the ATL.
