I'm not sure I would consider Chipper to be a better hitter than Murray. If Chipper can play at a high level for a few more years he could surpass him.
I'm pretty sure I'd consider Chipper a FAR superior hitter to Murray.
I hate Chipper and has cocky smirk, but if he doesn't go to the hall pretty much no one should.
And what are you guys talking about, "him being awesome in his prime"? The man is having a rediculous season right now - 1.029 OPS.
