The Braves have just made the news of Chipper Jones' injury official. A team press release just confirmed that he has a torn ACL and that surgery is required. Recovery time is about six months, meaning Chipper will miss the rest of the 2010 season.
Jon Bois makes the case for Chipper's eventual Hall of Fame induction, which isn't as set in stone as Braves fans may think. But yeah -- pretty darn close to a sure thing.
