Idea for Chipper's Heir Apparent
We are getting to the point where Chipper has to learn to just stand still. Because if he moves he gets hurt. Okay, that was an attempt at humorizing something sad to watch as we all love our boy. Still it makes sense to find an heir and I think I have the perfect guy for the job; Alex Gordon of the Royals. Once touted, in some circles, as the 2nd coming of ARod, Alex has been a big disappointment and even lost his job to Albert Callaspo. But Alex is just 36 years old and his minor league career was close to brilliant. Coming to the Braves we could have Chipper work with him and groom him to take over. He won't come at an enormous price but just something decent (Matt Diaz? A pitcher?) Thoughts?
