What a tough break for Chipper and the Braves. I really hate seeing Chipper go out this way, with a torn ACL. Assuming it is really the end, I can be grateful that unlike some other Braves players (cough … Glavine … cough), at least Chipper will be one and done with the Braves as his only professional franchise.
While Chipper is not having top notch year (certainly by his standards), his presence in the every day lineup could have only helped with Atlanta’s playoff run. As it now stands, Chipper will have to play the role of cheerleader.
