Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez is blaming his lack of sleep on Chipper Jones’ new Twitter account.

Gonzalez should have slept well after watching Mike Minor beat Philadelphia’s Joe Blanton 2-1 on Saturday night. Gonzalez says his mood turned sour after reading Jones’ latest tweet on his ?(at)RealCJ10 feed: “Wow Mikey Minor! Hats off to Blanton too. They were dealing. 4 game streak since I got on the twitta. Got a date wit the Doc tmrw. Go Bravos.”

Gonzalez said Sunday he “tossed and turned all night” as he worried about Jones’ chronic knee problems.

The manager finally realized Jones was referring to Phillies ace Roy “Doc” Halladay, who is starting against Jones and the Braves on Sunday. A relieved Gonzalez says he has to learn more about “Twitter lingo.”
