I would say he is for sure! Chipper is a VERY solid player and whenever I think of the braves, the first person I think of is Chipper. Dude def deserves it.

I think Chipper is easily a Hall of Famer and with a few more stats he could easily be inducted on the first ballot. Chipper is my favorite player and the Braves are my favorite team so I am extremely happy that he is going to try to stay in Atlanta his entire career.

If Chipper doesn't make the hall, I will be very disappointed. He is one of the greatest switch hitters of all time.

Sorry, but I have to say it.

No.

Also, can someone move this to HOF?

I actually did look at his stats before making my decision. He has been highly inconsistent.

What does inconsistent mean to you?

He has hit at least .300 in ten of his fourteen full seasons - he has hit below .295 exactly twice in his career. His OBP has been lower than .370 only twice, and never below .353. He has never hit less than twenty-one home runs, driven in at least 72 runs every year, and has never had an OPS+ lower than 108 (100 is league-average).

In short, Chipper Jones has never had anything close to a bad year. In fourteen full seasons, he has had one season that wasn't All-Star calibur. Among third-baseman, Jones ranks no lower than third in batting average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage, home runs, and OPS+. In terms of OPS+, Jones ranks behind only Mike Schmidt, who most consider the greatest third baseman of all-time.

Unless you take a massive amount of credit away from Jones for his defense (which is about average for the position), there is no way that he isn't a Hall of Famer. He's arguably the greatest third baseman of all-time, one of the five best players of his generation, and he has never been implicated for PED use.

Chipper Jones is obviously a Hall of Famer. It's not even close.
