Chipper Jones provides great quote on Greg Maddux's Hall of Fame worthiness

It's nearly a foregone conclusion that Greg Maddux will gain induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame once the ballots are revealed.

But former Atlanta Braves teammate Chipper Jones is already planning for the worst. And this is what spawned the above quote from David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The quote is in reference to the fact that the likes of Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, Honus Wagner, Cal Ripken Jr. and others were not unanimous picks for the Hall of Fame when they were inducted. So, it's likely that same will be the case for Maddux.

Nonetheless, Maddux will get into Cooperstown. Whether it's unanimous or not remains to be seen.

  1. Glavine and Maddox are locks, if they don't get in they should close the place.
