Truly an All-Star

There was an excellent article on yesterday about Chipper's success this year.

"It's incredible," Braves catcher Brian McCann said. "It's like watching what a lot of us did in high school -- and he's doing it against the best pitchers there are."
There was a night in Pittsburgh in early May when few would have dared mention Jones in the past tense. Forget Letterman or postgame snacks. Batting over .400 at the time but still unhappy with his swing, Jones recruited a couple of coaches to throw late-night batting practice.

"Game over, everyone was showering or eating, ready to get out, and we're in the cage banging it," Atlanta batting coach Terry Pendleton said.

We're pretty sure Chipper will be the starting third baseman for the All-Star game, but let's do one more final push to get Baby there too!
