Did you just ask if Chipper Jones is for real?

We're talking about a career .309 hitter with almost 400 career home runs. He hasn't hit less than 20 HRs in a season EVER (since 1995).

Ya, I'd say Chipper Jones is for real.

His minors #'s tend to make me think he'll keep it up.

If he's healthy, he'll hit, but he's been injury-prone in recent years...

His upside is better than Morneau's, but there's no way to tell if he'll stay healthy all year...

I don't trade Chipper for Morneau. Not the way he has been hitting for over a year now. Involved in a more dangerous offense too.

He is for real until he hits the DL. It seems like every year he has some sort of injury that lingers from that time until the end of the season. He is very hot right now. He will cool off maybe to a tune of .330 or something to that tune,

Sorry to all you Chipper owners but he seriously needs to cool down and go on DL.

A guy in my league has him, Furcal, and Utley... (oh ya and now granderson)

In our points league he's so far ahead, he can bench all his players for a month and no one would be able to catch up to him still.
