Braves put Chipper Jones on DL with hurt hamstring

As if that’s not bad enough, instead of Langerhans or Nilsson or someone else lefthanded, they called up Mike Hessman again to do whatever it is Mike Hessman is supposed to do. Get used to the DeWayne Wise Experience for at least another week. One of these days, either Langerhans or Hollins is going to take some hostages, mark my words.

PS: Just to note, I’m not opposed to Mike Hessman in principle. I’m opposed to the way they’re going to use him. The Braves neither need another righthanded bench bat nor another guy with a low OBP. They need someone who can hit like a league-average left fielder for the next few days. They’d be much better off bringing up one of the two guys I mentioned above and making him the platoon leftfielder, with Wise dropping to his natural fifth outfielder/defensive replacement/pinch-runner role.
