As most of you know, Chipper Jones is my favorite athlete of all time. He is my sport's hero(Him and Dale Sr)
I've went as far as saying Chipper is the best third baseman of all time and a better hitter than ken Griffey Jr, and I stand by my opinions.
Chipper tore his ACL making one of the best defensive plays of his career against Houston, and is done for the season, and there is a good chance that he will retire after the season.
I guess it is fitting that Chipper and Bobby go out together. Afterall, you don't think of one without thinking about the other.
Chipper played the game the right way, and the only people that have ever accused him of using PEDs are people on here that also thinks Greg Maddux used PEDs and every other player from this era.
He will be a first ballot Hall of Famer, and will be one of many numbers retired by the Braves in the near future(29 and 6 are sure to be retired as well, and in the last year 33 and 47 have been retired as well).
Chipper made a big splash in 95, coming in second in the Rookie of the Year voting, and winning the World Series in his rookie season.
There are plenty of great memories of Chipper.
Winning the MVP in 99
Winning a batting title at age 37
Hitting his 400th home run
Him killing the Mets and Phillies throughout his entire career
Mets and Phillies fans are the only people that will be glad to see him go.
I hope he returns next year for one last rodeo, but I kind of doubt that will happen. If he does retire, I guess it's time to recognize the Brian McCann era in Atlanta.
I haven't been this devasted over sports since Dale Earnhardt died.
