Chipper Jones spent his entire career with the Atlanta Braves, and the Braves nation was happy for it.  Jones was the 1999 National League MVP and helped the squad win the 1995 World Series.  Jones was a complete hitter, showing power (468 Home Runs) hit for average (Jones won a Batting Title and had a career average over .300) showed patience at the plate (his career OBP was over .400) and had speed in his younger days (150 career Stolen Bases).  Jones retired with an excellent bWAR of 85.0 and should be considered a first ballot Hall of Fame inductee.  In fact, we are fairly certain of it!
