Some good comments from Chipper Jones on Derek Jeter.

"I had a lot of animosity toward DJ early on in my career," Chipper Jones said. "He beat me in two World Series and I didn't know him. I sat across the field from him so many times, saw all the accolades he was getting and was a little green with envy. Then I got a chance to play with him (at the 2006 World Baseball Classic), in the clubhouse, in the dugout, off the field at dinner. This is the best dude I have ever met. This guy deserves everything."
