2012-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Did you see this article today http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/page/120507tripleplay/jamie-moyer-vs-chipper-jones-best-division-race-baseball-mlb? Who do you think would win a fight: Chipper or Moyer?
(Marcus Higgins from Outerspace)
Has to be Chipper. When the Braves were deciding between Jones and Todd Van Poppel, Jones punched a kid who yakked at his pitcher. Jones broke his hand, but supposedly won over Bobby Cox's heart at that moment. I think Van Poppel's asking price helped spark that romance, too. (R.J. Anderson)
2010-06-07 18:30:00 (link to chat)Todd Van Poppel was one player who tried to manipulate his way away from a team, saying he just wouldn't sign with the Braves. The Braves took Chipper Jones instead and have sent Van Poppel a bouquet of flowers every day since then. Pete Incaviglia made all kinds of demands of the Expos so he wouldn't have to sign there. They traded him, provoking a rules change.
(Steven Goldman from Langley, New Jersey)
Andrew Miller also tried, and the Tigers called his bluff. I'm ticked as Gary Brown to the Giants makes great sense, and I love this pick. 3.9 to first from the right side? SOLD. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-07-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Too bad Alex Gordon is the biggest bust in the history of the universe, eh?
(NHZ from Royals Review)
I thought that was Todd Van Poppel, but maybe that's my bitterness showing. (Christina Kahrl)
