actually
check this out
ATLANTA (AP) -- Chipper Jones was held out of the Atlanta Braves' starting lineup Thursday due to ongoing problems with sore thumbs.

Jones bruised both of his thumbs in a May 11 collision with Pittsburgh's Jose Bautista, causing him to miss four games. Even though he returned to his starting job at third base, he has had difficulty playing through the soreness.

*gasp*

Chipper injured?! NO WAY!

Sell this guy high and fast. I don't know why people still hold onto him with his value being good right now.

precisely why you sell him now for another player that can produce as much as him, on an everyday basis.

He'll probably be out of the lineup this weekend. A DL trip is a possibility but not likely.

What superslugger is say, and I agree, is that while it would be nice to sell high, who you gonna sell to if most people know he's fragile.

I tried diligently to get rid of him over the last 3-4 weeks, very fair offers... but no one in my league wanted him.
