We had our bags packed, ready to go back to Atlanta. And all of a sudden, the rug is pulled out from under you. Its unfortunate. You go out there, lay it on the line for six hours, and 18 innings. To go home for the winter on a game like that is a bad feeling.

Hes got 13 wins. Thats a difference maker with the amount of injuries weve had to our pitching staff this year. We were able to dip down in the bullpen and have him start - good start after good start, five, six, seven innings every time out, giving us a chance to win.
Chipper Jones time
Hes been pretty much lights out since he got over here.
Chipper Jones light
Hes far and away, I think, the MVP of this league.
Chipper Jones think
His command of the strike zone is a lot better. Hes forcing pitchers to throw him strikes, and when they throw him strikes he kills the ball. No. 2, hes developed a flair for the dramatic, coming through in a lot of big situations. Those are things MVPs are made of.
Chipper Jones man

I didnt get all of it, but I got enough, ... Im just happy that it came in a big spot.
Chipper Jones happy
I didnt really take care of myself in terms of what I ate. As I get closer to the end of my career, I cant do that. I want to finish my career strong with the Braves, and I feel this is something that had to be done.
Chipper Jones self
I didnt know that; Im glad you didnt tell me before the game. Im glad we could avoid that from being a hot topic in the morning.
Chipper Jones you
If a guy who has a personal interest in the Braves buys the team, hes more apt to take the money that he makes off the team and put it right back into the team ? such as Ted did. Time Warner didnt do that. Obviously, selling out to (Liberty Media), I dont see things being any different.
Chipper Jones war
I dont see any reason why he cant do it again.
Chipper Jones reason
I dont see any reason why he cant do it again. Now, to ask him to hit 51 homers again is probably a little too much to ask. But I certainly think he can throw up 40 homers every year.
Chipper Jones reason

Chipper Jones time

From a team point of view, it wasnt a real good trip. But from an individual standpoint of getting to go out there and prove myself with some of the best players in the country and the world, it was very satisfying.
Chipper Jones world
I have confidence in whoever goes out there. Even when Kolbie was struggling at the beginning of the season, I always felt like his last outing would be the one when he turned it around. It took him being demoted and hes figured it out. Hes getting key outs. Reitsma will do the same.
Chipper Jones confidence
If we can get outs in the seventh, eighth and ninth innings, well be fine. Were going to score some runs. Weve got plenty of starters. But weve got to hold the fort down after the starter goes out.
Chipper Jones art
If we have five or six guys who do what is expected of them, itll be a fun year for us. But the fact of the matter is, we play in a pitchers ballpark. We have to play to our strength.

Chipper Jones art
If I were to look at it objectively, Id probably favor other teams as well. But theres something about this clubhouse and this uniform. We walk out on the field and expect to win. I know other teams walk out on the field and theyre hoping to win. And theres a big difference. We expect to win. Its not going to be any different this year. If we dont win this division, everyone in this clubhouse will be shocked.
Chipper Jones vision
If this year doesnt satisfy people, then Andruw is fighting a battle hes never going to win. We always thought he could hit 40 homers and drive in 120. It was just a matter of putting it all together.
Chipper Jones people
I get the benefit from him having a monster year. Hes pretty much killed them in every series and hes the last guy that they want to have at the plate with the game on the line.
Chipper Jones wit
I have been hearing forever how this team or that team is going to beat us. No ones done it yet.
Chipper Jones forever
I lost track of how many at-bats we had today. After seven or eight at-bats, the bats starting getting heavy. Guys hadnt eaten since 10 or 11 this morning. It takes a lot out of you. Youve got to gut it out. They did. I wish them luck. They played an outstanding series.
Chipper Jones art
I like beating everybody, not just the Mets, ... It just so happens that we play them late in the season a lot every year and weve had some meaningful games.
Chipper Jones meaning

Chipper Jones sin
Im going to get it from him when I get back to camp.
Chipper Jones
Im going to hear it from Oscar when we get back to camp.
Chipper Jones
Im surprised he threw the ball between the two dugouts. He was jacked up!
Chipper Jones
Im very impressed. Ive been wanting to go over to Japan for a long time to play on the All-Star tour. Everybody tells me they usually kick our butts when we go over there. So major league-caliber baseball is played over in Japan, too.
Chipper Jones time
I probably had more butterflies today than any playoff game. There was a tremendous amount of pride to walk into our clubhouse and see 30 guys with some pretty darn big egos and put them aside for this.
Chipper Jones men
I know if I walk in the clubhouse tomorrow morning and I say, Im not going to be able to get on the field until I have some, I feel fairly certain I could find some. Until recently, its been sitting up in plain sight. ... You see what you see.
Chipper Jones you
Ill start some games, and Ill caddy for A-Rod, too. When I get in there, I want to make the most of my opportunities.
Chipper Jones art
I think chemistry is probably our greatest asset right now. It can only be a good thing. These guys are close knit.
Chipper Jones good
It does show were going back to normalcy when Met fans begin booing again.
Chipper Jones
I think hes a landslide winner. Youre talking about a guy who plays Gold Glove defense, the best center fielder in the game, bar none. Everybodys just been waiting for him to turn the corner offensively, and now hes done that.
Chipper Jones love
I thought he was nasty the second game that we played against him. Everybody was saying he looked like a different guy. But to be honest with you, he pitched well the first game against us. He just made the one bad pitch.
Chipper Jones thought
I thought it was awesome. I never played winter ball, never got to play in a Caribbean Series. The Mexican fans brought a lot of excitement to the game.
Chipper Jones men
Logic would say Roger has the upper hand in that situation.
Chipper Jones logic
Maybe some people in here thought we were going to glide into the playoffs, but it aint going to happen. There are too many good teams in the league. We let an opportunity slide in this homestand.
Chipper Jones people
I would never have thought I would have hit home runs off both those guys. They both have dominant, No. 1-type stuff. It was just one of those nights.
Chipper Jones home
I would give anything to be able to have another opportunity to play in this tournament. If it meant going to some kind of camp on Feb. 1, Id go.
Chipper Jones men
Old men need a little rest. We need to get some of these young guys off the bench.
Chipper Jones men
On November 1, everybodys in shape. There wouldnt be an issue with pitch counts. There wouldnt be an issue with knocking the rust off coming into spring training. Things like that. I think it would be a little bit better tournament. Youd probably see a little more offense and a little more emphasis on starting pitching.
Chipper Jones art
Nobody in here was saying it was a fluke. We all know he can do it. He got off to a horrible start last year and still bounced back and had a great season.
Chipper Jones art
Probably not, but its a tremendous compliment to him and his abilities that hes even considered.
Chipper Jones men
Roger isnt ever going to let up, no matter who hes playing.
