Chipper Jones tore the ALC in his left knee against Houston while making a jump throw from third base Tuesday night.
The injury, which requires surgery, ends Jones’ season early, and may spell the end to what is sure to be a Hall of Fame career.
My gut, however, says Chipper won’t leave baseball on the operating table.
I fully expect the 38-year-old to make a comeback in 2011.
In the meantime, here’s how Jones’ career has shaped up against our
Cubbies to date:
–101 games vs. Cubs in 17 brilliant seasons with Atlanta.

- 24 HR
- 79 RBI
