Chipper Jones will be shocked if Jason Heyward doesn't break camp with the Braves

Jason Heyward running.jpgThe title kind of said it all, but that was Jones’ quote after today’s game against the Mets:  “I will be shocked if he doesn’t break camp with us.”

Everyone who has watched his two games against the Mets so far is raving.  He’s hit the ball hard. He scored from second base on an infield grounder today. Spring training stats mean close to nothing, but if you believe in such things he’s got a single a double and three walks in six plate appearances.

For what it’s worth, Ed Price of AOL tweets that the last 20 year-old to get 400 plate appearances after playing in 50 or fewer games above A-ball: fellow by the name of Ken Griffey Jr. in 1989.

    It would be nice if more black guys played baseball then football or basketball. Baseball is missing out on to many top notch athletes nowadays

    Cursive or print? Both?

    Cursive. Too bad there aren’t any “i’s” in it so I can dot them with hearts.

    Junior’s birthday is 11/21/1969. He was actually 19 for the entire 1989 season. :)

    What, no I ‘heart’ Jason, or Jason ‘heart’s’ Craig instead? I am excited, but the way the folks talk about Zeus, you’d think he was Jesus. His double yesterday was off the legendary Eddie Kunz. We’ve got to calm down a bit until he faces an actual pitcher.

    How about a heart as the period on Mrs.? You gotta play with the hand you’re dealt.
