Starbreaker, I ment to ask you this. With the year that Chipper is having, pretty good numbers and relatively healthy. I know he has been taking his retirement tour, but do you think there is a chance he will come back next year?
He's said he wants to go out on his own terms and that there is no chance of him coming back. He's already gotten a whole bunch of third bases from different ball parks, been on video boards, etc. I think it would be embarrassing for him to decide he wants to play again now.
He's only playing about 75% of the time as it is. His knees are really shot. If the Braves were in the American League, I would say he would want to play DH.
An interesting note, he was never a free agent in his entire career.
