A Note For Chipper Jones And Assorted Others, From The Editors Of…

What you're about to read is a stupid story about people being stupid with one another on the internet. Somehow, we're not involved (only we sort of are).

As many have noted, two weeks ago, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution asked Chipper Jones what he thought of the one-game playoff.
