(Nice recovery. Played it off like a pro.)
That’s a helluva career. You think there’s any way Chipper will get into the HOF with 27,000 hits? Not on the first ballot. Those voters will still say he only had 468 home runs and hold it against him even with the 27,000 hits. Those angry, old white guys that vote for the Hall will make Chip wait at least 3-4 years before they let him into the prestigious fraternity.
You know what Chip has that those old white guys don’t? 27,000 hits and a dime. He’ll be just fine.
