Chipper Jones calls out Melky Cabrera for crotch chopping again

Melky Cabrera antagonized Braves fans for the second day in a row, and this time Chipper Jones called him out for his actions.

During the third inning of Tuesday’s series opener between the Braves and Giants, Cabrera did a “suck it” crotch chop to the Braves fans after making a catch.

Cabrera repeated the gesture at least twice during the Giants’ 9-4 win on Wednesday. He did it after homering in the sixth, and again after Gregor Blanco’s home run in the 11th made it 9-3.

On top of that, Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area says Melky teased Braves fans by pretending to throw balls to them, and that he did a hand gesture after Jason Heyward decided not to tag on a ball hit to him in deep left (seen above).

Chipper Jones, who was probably frustrated after committing two costly errors, took note of Cabrera’s behavior.

“That’s Melky, and that’s why he’s not here anymore,” Jones said after the game, per CSN Bay Area. “He got a little happy when I think (Gregor) Blanco hit the home run. That won’t be forgotten.”

Sounds to me like someone is getting dosed on Thursday. That will probably be fine with Braves fans who booed Cabrera after he homered. The former Brave was really doing some bush league garbage all series long.

    Chipper is just bent out of shape because they got beat again.  I am sure if the Braves knew Cabrera was going to be an All-Star MVP and leading the NL is batting average that he would still be on the team.

    Chipper is wrong Cabbera is trying to scratch the STD he got from rear ending Blanco every day. The guy was complete garbage when a Brave and should be embarrassed by how he played here. You noticed Cano stood him up and punked him during the hr in the all star game even the Yankees want nothing to do with him.
