Last year, Chipper Jones took to Twitter to talk all about his displeasure with Major League umpire Angel Hernandez.   Hernandez has a past of drawing a bad reaction out of people and Chipper is just one of these.

It seems those of us looking on our television screens aren’t the only ones tired of umpire  Hernandez’s antics.  Chipper shared the field with this veteran umpire on numerous occasions throughout his 19-year career and shared his true opinion of him last year during a Philadelphia Phillies game last year.

Well it seems as though Chipper is staying true to his words.

The Atlanta Braves are hosting the Washington Nationals this weekend at Turner Field and guess who is on the umpire crew?

You guessed it…Angel Hernandez

The Braves have taken the first two games of a three game series and are going for the sweep today but Chip hasn’t watched a pitch…

And guess what…some calls have been questioned the past two games.

I’ll be watching today’s game at 1:35pm to see if anything happens today….hopefully we make some more highlights for Chipper so he can stay in touch with how the Braves do.
