In spite of the Braves' woes over the past week, our professional hitter Chipper Jones has been swinging such a hot bat it "finally" garnered him Player of the Week honors. Over the past week Jones led the N.L. with a .579 (11-19) batting average, a 1.105 slugging percentage and a .652 on-base percentage and his 11 hits were tied for the league-lead. This, despite missing two games during the week.
We all know the importance of Chipper Jones to the Braves lineup, so let's hope these back to back days off will find him healed and ready to get into the lineup against the Cubs.
