    Injuries slowed him. As far as the Hall goes he's definitely in. Dale Murphy was a great player too, clutch clean up batter.

    Not a Bravo fan by any stretch.....BUT...
    If a bum like Ron "Pizza Man" Santo gets the sympathy nod to the H.O.F.,
    then Chipper should be all-in.

    yea, he was absolutely in 3 years ago when this thread was started as well, Chipper really hasn't even made that much noise in the last 3 years with the exception to this years start.

    Trollers gonna troll

    So we can't use stats to show why one guy is better then let's consider that Murphy hasn't and won't ever sniff the hall of fame. Chipper is a lock. But thank god you're here to make sure that we know they've got it all wrong

    I think tt is quite possibly the dumbest person on the Internet

    When Ted T owned the Braves... Dale was the only player who could not be traded by team management

    It had to get Ted T's personal Ok

    So you admit one guy is a hall of famer and the other guy isn't but the guy who isn't is the better player

    Classic tt ass backwards logic

    Dale Murphy belongs in the "hall of very good" with guys like joe carter, Dwight Evans and Reggie smith.

He currently holds the Braves team record for career on base percentage (.406), and on July 5, 2007, he passed Dale Murphy for third place on the Braves all-time career home runlist.

    Larry gets in on the 1st ballot, and this is coming from a phillies fan who hates the braves.

    Nice bump.

    In the 2 and 1/2 years since this thread was posted in Sept 09, Chipper has improved his career stats by: 240 more hits, 35 more HR's, 139 more RBI's, and his avg dropped from .308 to .304. He battled injuries over this time. He needs 367 more hits for 3,000, and 41 more HR's for 500.

    1st ballot, IMO
