Nothing related to fantasy.. Just an ATL homer with an undying hard-on for Chipper

I can only hope my kids turn out to play ball like him one day

Chipper Jones probably would have won MLB’s “Final Vote” contest for the last remaining spot on the National League All-Star roster. But with Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp bowing out due to a hamstring injury, the veteran third baseman no longer needs your clicks.

Chipper was officially tabbed as Kemp’s replacement on Tuesday evening and celebrated by going 5-for-5 with two doubles and four RBI in the Braves’ 10-3 stomping of the Cubs at Atlanta’s Turner Field.

It was only the third 5-for-5 game of his career and his first five-hit performance since August 11, 2002.

“Tonight was just one of those dream games,” Jones told beat writer David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution late Tuesday night. “I’d be hard-pressed to find another game where I played better. … That more than likely is my last five-hit game. I’m glad it happened here at home.”

Jones, 40, has already announced that he is going to retire after this season. The .304/.402/.531 career hitter is batting .313/.389/.485 through 46 games and should remain relevant in mixed fantasy leagues until the very end.

In spite of the fact that he has always been a thorn in the side of every Mets fan, I have to tip my hat to him. He is a class act and an outstanding ball player.

You're definitely looking at the wrong numbers if you're asking that question. I maintain. Baggy was robbed.

He already had one, so they let Chipper have it.
