Chipper Jones is not a fan of Scott Boras.
Following the Atlanta Braves’ miracle run to becoming World Series Champions in 2021, the MLB mega-agent attributed the triumph to a tanking epidemic taking place around the league.
“We have seen the championship in 60 days,” Boras said last week, per FOX Sports. “The rules allow them to be a less-than-.500 team at Aug. 1 and add four players, five players from teams that no longer wanted to compete, and for very little cost change the entirety of their team and season.
“And we saw this unfold to the detriment of teams that create at vast expense, planning and intellect and won over 100 games. In doing all this, we have now created an understanding that a fan would not know who the true team is until, frankly, the trading deadline.
“The Atlanta Braves are the Atlanta Braves because tanking teams said, ‘I want to get to the bottom to get those draft picks.”

Over the weekend, Chipper Jones weighed in on Scott Boras’s comments. And the Braves legend didn’t hold back on his resentment towards the agent.
cause certain teams to HAVE to sell off players. Been done this way for years. His team (LAD) traded for/or signed 3 eventual/potential HOFers & didn’t get it done. But bc it paid off for the Braves, now it’s a problem? Dude, stay in your lane. No one cares what you think. #smh

Scott Boras tried to walk back his initial comment about the Braves championship.
“Because they didn’t write what I said before I said any of that,” Boras said Thursday, per The Athletic. “I said, ‘Hey, the Atlanta Braves and what they did, what their general manager did, they’re operating within a system, and they did it efficiently. Very efficiently. That’s their jobs. They did a good job with that.”
Regardless of Scott Boras’s follow up, I don’t think he’ll be grabbing a beer with Chipper Jones in the near future.
