Oh Larry Wayne, it seems like every couple of months we're writing one of these posts asking you to please get well soon so we can watch you rock the Atlanta Braves hot corner.
Chipper Jones isn’t quite sure how badly he hurt his left knee Tuesday night while making a sweet play in the sixth inning of his team's 4-2 win over the Houston Astros. He explained the sensation post-game:
It's hurt. I heard a distinct pop. I don’t think it's my ACL because when I did it before it sounded like my knee exploded. It sounded like the whole stadium could hear it pop. While I did hear it pop, it wasn’t the same pop.The 38-year-old third baseman, who is batting .265 with 10 home runs and 46 RBI this season, is expected to have that MRI on Thursday in Atlanta.
I’ve got a very distinct pain on the lower left side of my knee. I don’t know what that means. Hopefully it’s just a sprain... just got to wait for the MRI.
Fun fact: Jones' replacement at third, Brooks Conrad, hit the game-winning home run last night. Get well soon, Larry Wayne!
