Chip Off The 'ol Block

Chipper Jones spoke to The Sporting News and had a few words about the National League East.

"From a Mets standpoint, they've had a running feud with the Phillies the
past couple of years. It's kind of weird not to be in it.

We won for 14 consecutive years, and you never, ever saw any bulletin board
material. And now that these two teams are on top of the division, they can't
keep their mouths shut. Just go play baseball. It's Cole Hamels now. It was
Jimmy Rollins and Carlos Beltran the past couple of springs. These two teams are
constantly going at each other verbally. You know, win with class, lose with
class. Just keep your mouth shut and go play your game."

Did he just trash talk trash talking? The heat in the east continues to flare up between all the teams within the division. When somebody speaks in the division, there is usually an answer. Will somebody respond to Jones? It definitely adds talk.

Now it's time for someone from the lowly gNats or the low budget Fish to spout off.

Haha yeah. Somebody will respond.. they always do.


The Phillies talk a little, but I think the Mets take trash talking to a new level, though, like when that ding-dong ran around the bases after his his home run with his finger in the air like he just made the Hall of Fame or something last season

The mets and phillies have this competitive edge to them. There's nothing wrong with exchanging some words. I find it makes the sport more enjoyable when players run there mouths a bit as long as it doesn't go overboard. Chipper's just mad cause the braves aren't as competitive as they used to be in the past.

All teams are starting to say something. The division is just one big rivalry. I love the talking, because its making the rivalry bigger.
