Could Chipper Jones Hit .400?

Postby Doughhead » Sun Jun 01, 2008 8:40 am

It's now June and Chipper's at .413. At what point do we start to think he's got a legitimate shot at .400? All-Star Break? August 1?

He'd have to be hitting over .400 with 2 weeks to go before I would think he had a serious chance.

The only way he will finish .400 if his season is cut short.

I say he's going to end up around Magglio's #'s last year.

If he was a hitter with a historically very high batting average -- a Gwynn or Carew, say -- it's fun to speculate around the All Star break. For everyone else though, including Jones -- no, it's not gonna happen. If he's still over .400 in September, we'll talk about it then.
