Chipper Jones

As slomo and I have posted in numerous other threads, I still believe he will come around. He's a career .300 hitter. This BA you're seing right now is ugly, I know that, you know that, Chipper knows that. I expect him to have a great second half of the season...

Thanks for all the input there. I have kept Chipper on the bench as much as I can, but it's difficult with Magglio Ordonez out and half my pitching staff on the DL.

OK. unless Chipper goes on the DL for a major part of the remaining season or plays throgh all of it with a significant injury its extremely unlikely almost to the point of becoming impossible that Chipper doesnt turn it around in order to have somewhat respectable from now on. same for Boone. these kinda rhidiculous dropoffs in performance over such a long period of time like a whole season are very rare, even moreso for experienced guys. :-°

btw Chipper's hammy is still kinda sore.
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

I would never suggest cutting Chipper. He is just too good. Will he end on 300/30/110 this year? Or corse not! However in the second half he could easily go 300/15/50... I think this is the guy on the top of the buy low list right now... there are a lot of rumours about trading AJones for a more reliable bat, ie Magglio.... so that could only help. His power is actually right on track with in a full season at this rate would be in the low 30's easily. One thing to consider is that he is coming off a very serious injury and also His 1-2 hitters that are real good have missed ALOT of time. Also Furcal just hasen't hit his stride yet. Last night Furcal had a decent game - Chip had 2 RBI's right there. So when Giles comes back and Furcal starts hitting - look out

Chipper

As a braves fan i have trouble believing that chipper is done. I think he is in the same boat as Andruw and is just in a slump. Chipper isnt done and dropping chipper onto waivers will just ensure that someone elses lineup is that much better second half.
Let's play two!

i'd be inclined to trade for chipper now, but i've already got andruw on my team! i don't think i could deal with two slumping jones at the same time...

I need a 3B desperately in a 14 man HTH points league and have the opportunity to trade Burrell for Chipper . . . is this a good buy low sell high maneuver or is Burrell too good?

Do that trade in a heartbeat IMO.

It's tough, that's what I'm doing, although there some hits happening last night, so I'm hoping it's the light at the end of the tunnel (and not a train).

Chipper is definitely a great buy-low guy in keeper leagues. I got him earlier in the season for Alex Sanchez in my dynasty league. Next year, he'll be fully healthy(hopefully) and able to man 3B for my squad. Hopefully, the Braves will address some of their offensive holes this offseason too.....
