As someone who watched a lot of him when I was younger, I can say he is probably the best hitter I've ever seen play. He worked the count better than anyone else I ever saw. He wasn't the greatest third baseman ever, but he was more than adequate (career -5 DRS) and when he played some left field later in his career, he did more than fine (2 DRS). He was consistently a 5-6 WAR player and was a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame before his career was even three-quarters of the way over. He was a Brave for life and will be going into the Hall within the next two years.
Thanks for the memories, Chipper!
