Okay, it isn’t really Ken Griffey, Jr.’s birthday; that was a few weeks ago, on November 21. Junior was, however, born exactly 15,000 days ago today, and over at The Hardball Times, Chris Jaffe has chosen the occasion to celebrate Junior’s fine career.

More interestingly, Chris has put together an “all-living” Cincinnati Reds team, based on career performance for the Reds (using WAR). I’m a sucker for these all-time teams, so it’s highly recommended.
