I'm definitely smarter now

Right fielder Jeff Francoeur jokingly calls him "the old fart in the clubhouse," then ranks him among the most underrated players in the game.
"I'm definitely smarter now," Jones said. "I'm quicker to pick up on pitchers and teams -- how they're trying to pitch me, knowing pitchers' repertoires and what they're going to try and get you out with in a crucial situation. I'll sit on a pitch and wait the whole at-bat for that pitch. Young hitters don't do that."

Chipper has been unbelievable. I can't think of a better start he's ever had.

He'd better not miss that starter position at 3B. We Braves just have to vote for him as much as possible.

That's a funny post. I love the Frenchy quote.

Now let's get back in gear against the A's!

Chipper's starting out amazingly this season. I hope he can stay healthy.
