Chipper Jones Gets Ejected From Bench, Would Face Suspension In 2011

It's nice to see that hanging around Bobby Cox has rubbed off on Chipper Jones. The injured Braves player, who has been on the disabled list with a torn ACL since mid-August, got to jawing about balls and strikes with umpire Doug Eddings—watch it here—and got tossed from the Braves' dugout for his thoughts.

It's funny, more than anything, though Jones told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Dave O'Brien that Eddings "has an inconsistent strike zone" and praised pitcher Jair Jurrjens for adapting to it in the Braves' 2-0 win over the Marlins.

But the punch line might be what O'Brien just tweeted: for being ejected while on the DL, Jones faces a one-game suspension in 2011. That would be an ignominious, hilarious way to begin what would likely be a last comeback attempt.
