Is he done? (I say no)

Is he worth the frustration in H2H? (man, I'm not sure)

So many little niggling injuries :-P
I've had to get him a caddy this year, that team also has Rickie Weeks and his caddy :-C

He's worth it in OBP leagues, but his power is on the way out.

He's fine if you can pair him with a decent second option but don't think about owning him without a backup. And if you play in a non-daily transaction league don't touch him.

Braves should have moved him to 1B instead of bringing in Glaus.
Then just added a 3B in the offseason (or used Prado at 3B and added a 2B).

I think Chipper needs to DH if he wants to stay productive for the next few years.
Not sure he wants to do that though.

Because Yahoo lists him as Chipper Jones for some reason

Long-time Larry Wayne supporter, first time caller. I'm done with Larry Wayne in HTH.

A few years ago he gave you elite stats when he was in the lineup and healthy but you got him for a big discount because of injuries and missed time. Now I think he's down to giving you "good" stats when he's right, but still causes team management headaches.

Just not worth is for HTH. For roto he's probably not too bad since you can "make up" those missed starts and don't have to immediately fill that position when he's out.
