Braves Quote For The Day: Chipper On Troy

This quote comes from David O'Brien's quote round-up after Friday night's game two victory. Chipper Jones talks about the double play started by Troy Glaus to get out of a bases loaded jam in the ninth inning:

"He came off the field and said he was about to throw up. Said he’s never really been put in for defensive purposes before [Chipper is laughing here, hardly able to finish the sentence.] When they hit it, I didn’t even know he was in the game. I was like, ‘Oh, my God, that’s Troy.’

"And he made a decent throw and we got the double play. It was just fun to see his reaction, because he literally looked like he was about to heave."

Good stuff, though I'm still not sold on Glaus playing third on any sort of regular basis from here on out. If he has that play to do over again I'm not sure he makes it half the time. That being said, he did make the play, and it saved the game. It looked like raw instinct kicked in from all those years he was a third baseman. Glaus probably surprised himself as much as he surprised everyone else.
