So here we have Rob Neyer. West Coast-living, Kansas City Royals-supporting, American League-superiority-proclaiming Rob Neyer. A man who knows essentially nothing about the Atlanta Braves, and little enough about the National League East generally (which is why he keeps picking the Mets) and is perfectly capable — as he has proven again and again — of not mentioning the Braves for weeks at a time even if they’re in first place. And he takes it upon himself to partake in some good, old-fashioned, unprovoked and unsupported character assassination. Apparently, Chipper Jones, a player who has again and again renegotiated his contract to help the team and who moreover is in no way obligated to retire even if he can’t get out of bed, is primarily motivated by greed. Or so says Rob Neyer, anyway.
Now let’s go kick some “superior league” ass. Again.
