Looks like it’s knee surgery for Junior Griffey.

Prediction: after the ChiSox decline Griffey’s 2009 contract option, Junior will sign a contract with the Seattle Mariners. I wish him nothing but the best of luck.

    It is an interesting thought that his knee hurt his production more than an age-related decline in skills. On the other hand, lots of people were saying his bat speed has gone WAY down the last couple of years.

    Hope we don’t see a repeat of Willie Mays on the Mets hanging on just one year too many.

    Too bad it took so long for the maturity to kick in. Maybe the trade was the proverbiable 2 x 4 upside the head.

    Blah, blah, blah…Dunn. Blah, blah, blah..Dunn. Who gives a crap anymore. He didn’t help us win…and the D-backs didn’t get in the playoffs with the addition of his “big bat”.
    And I don’t wanna see any bullcrap numbers run out here…he was a slacker, he did not hustle, he sucked at defense, and I’m glad he’s gone!!

    Even after he’s gone, the subject Dunn always seems to dominate the conversation. He’s gone and he’s not coming back to Cincy. Now its all just needless controversy.

    bull. Anybody that didn’t help us win, was a a part of why we lost. Anybody and everybody.

    Whether it is fair, or whether they were better is a matter of conjecture but I do know they were more enjoyable and entertaining to watch after the two big guns were traded away.

    Mark in CC — Nice to know somebody agrees with my opinion…which of course is right!
    I certainly enjoyed watching the Reds play more after the “the big guns” ….er…”water pistols”, were gone.

    I’m glad to hear that Jr. says he’ll play in 2009. Seattle would make sense in that it might be his last year. I think he could have one or two more productive seasons as a DH and part time corner outfielder.

    Don’t believe anyone has irrational hatred of Dunn. What is hated is the irrational love that goes the other way.
