I should probably talk about this article, where Chipper indicates he’s not happy playing the outfield. He says he has trouble focusing on the game when he’s in the outfield. I’ll throw in two other reasons; he’s not a very good outfielder, and Vinny Castilla is a terrible, terrible player.
Meanwhile, Ernie Johnson Sr. is broadcasting the game for TBS today, for some reason. And he needs his tapioca, apparently. During Chipper’s first at-bat, he said that he thought “Chipper has become a really good hitter.” Yeah, cause you know how awful a hitter he was when he came up.
