Aw, seems like only yesterday Bryce Harper was glued to his buddy Chipper Jones' side at the 2012 All Star game like a kid with his grandpa.
Last night, Chipper went on Twitter to rip Harper after Harper sparked that benches-clearing incident in the 5th inning after being plunked by Julio Teheran. This, of course, after the Braves thought Harper had admired his third inning home run just a little too much. Here's Chipper Jones being a huge douchebag on Twitter last night:
Don't walk off homers and u won't get hit!— Chipper Jones (@RealCJ10) August 7, 2013
Apparently some one didn't appreciate it. Win with class, lose with class.— Chipper Jones (@RealCJ10) August 7, 2013
Many diff takes on tonites action. It's part of the game that I wish didn't exist, but it does. Respect the other team, respect the game!— Chipper Jones (@RealCJ10) August 7, 2013
Wednesday morning, Chipper quit Twitter. Thank you:
No more twitter for me. Said I'd do it for one year and the time is up. Too much hate and too many trolls. Much love to Braves country! Xo— Chipper Jones (@RealCJ10) August 7, 2013
And here's Harper's home run that started everything off. That's a slowwww trot.
