Attention Choppers

It’s been one freaky-ass year in Major League Baseball’s Deep South. At press time, the Tampa Bay Rays were leading the Red Sox and Yankees in the AL East, and the Florida Marlins were shadowing the front-running Phillies in the NL East. Meanwhile, the Land of Cotton’s perennial 800-pound gorilla, the Atlanta Braves, were sucking wind at the back of the pack. This despite the efforts of superstar Chipper Jones, who’s been flirting with .400 all year.

The Braves and their damnable tomahawk chop return to Chase Field for a four-game series.
