“The Phillies are as good as any team I’ve seen. I’d put them up against any of those Yankees clubs of the late ’90s and early 2000s. That club has got it going on and they are flat out playing like it, day in and day out.” – Chipper Jones
I’ve always liked Chipper, personally. We always get on him when he comes to town with the “Lar-ry” chants, but that’s out of pure respect. Chipper has been one of the best player in baseball since 1995, and he has done it the right way. So much class and so much respect for the guy. I have watched him kill the Phillies many, many times, and I hated him for that. But as a baseball fan, I have much respect for Larry.
