Chipper Jones prediction

Over at Talking Chop, a Braves blog, they have this to say about Chipper Jones..

"I think Chipper is entering a post-outfield mid-30's renaissance in his career. He tasted what a batting title could be like last year and he'll be out to win it this year."......

"He's gotta be healthy this year - he's long overdue. While it's hard to avoid all types of injury -- and we hope Chipper won't find some new way to injure himself -- he's likely figured out by now how to condition himself properly so the "pulls" and "strains" that plagued him the last few years are less frequent. We know that a healthy Chipper is a key ingredient to an appearance for the Braves in the post season. He knows the lineup and the rotation we're going to have next year are going to be the best the Braves have had in a long time, and he's going to do everything he can to stay in there. Expect big things from Chipper Jones in 2008."

Their prediction for Larry is...

.342/.437/.608 with 34 HR, 118 RBI, 89 BB, 82 SO in 152 games played

Do you think that Chipper will have that good of a season?

I think he will have a good season but not as good as Talking Chop thinks.. I say:

.318/.418/.572 with 27 HR, 93 RBI, 63 BB, 59 SO in 131 games played.

Any predictions?
