Chipper Jones isn’t in baseball anymore but he’s still around baseball, still spreading his awesomeness far and wide. And he’s apparently still carrying grudges against certain umpires that he didn’t get along with when he was a player.
No. 1 on Chipper’s umpire hate list is Angel Hernandez. Chipper revealed on SiriusXM radio that he gets a little happy-boner every time Hernandez has a call overturned by replay.
There needs to be some adjustments to how quickly [replay] is done, but I love it. Every time Angel Hernandez gets challenged I love it! … My goodness, it warms my heart every time I get on Twitter and I hear that Angel Hernandez got a call overturned because all of my followers, they know my affection towards Angel Hernandez and when he gets a call overturned they are all over it, my Twitter feed lights up.
Angel Hernandez is to Chipper Jones what Pornstache is to fans of Orange is the New Black. Hernandez is the authority figure Chipper loves to hate. Every time Hernandez gets a call overturned, Chipper feels just like we did when Pornstache got hauled away in handcuffs for impregnating Diaz.
Spoiler alert, I guess.
