Amid all the hullabaloo over some football-throwing guy joining a new team, usurping the Chosen Quarterback from his ordained role as Football Saviour, Sean Tomlinson at Goal-Line Stand wrote an interesting post about QBs in their age 35 & 36 seasons.

It got me thinking about baseball players at similar ages. So I did some Play Index digging.

Turns out Chipper Jones is even better than we thought. Consider the very best age 35/36 seasons since World War II, by, um, WAR.

Chipper, man. We may never appreciate just how good you really are.
