chipper jones....3b?

Postby mocabeenow » Mon Feb 02, 2004 3:14 pm

Have any of you heard if Chipper could go back to playing third base this year with Castilla being gone? Is that a possibility? My friend has kept Chipper the last two years for this sole purpose.

That isn't going to happen. Chipper dosen't have the range anymore.

From what I have seen it looks like Mark Derosa will get the chance to be the 3rd baseman for Atlanta.

I think Betemit has a decent chance of starting at third for the Braves.

i wish he would move back because i have him and i think he would be ranked in the top 5 3rd baseman imo.

I seem to hear this speculation of Chipper going back to 3B a lot these days. I agree with everyone else here, he won't move back to 3B. I won't say it's not possible, if the right situation arises, but it is doubtful. Whoever plays 3B this season is just keeping the spot warm for Andy Marte in 2005.

DeRosa will be the starter, with Branyan being the backup
