Goodbye to a Sweet Guy: Braves at Phillies Game Thread, September 21, 2012

Loading Scores

Tonight, the Phillies bid adieu to baseball legend Chipper Jones, a man whose very name invokes class and refinement. A man whose talent has transcended the game, elevating him to the status of legends like Gandhi and Dick Cavett.

So it should be that we, too, shall say "goodbye" to fairest Chipper Jones, a true mensch. See you around, Mr. Jones.

Kyle Kendrick gets the privilege of pitching to Chipper tonight. Tim Hudson has the honor of having Chipper play defense behind him for the Braves.

Discuss the game below.
