Tonight is the first game back in Cincinnati since Junior was traded. It's been written that the team has removed things pertaining to him (the homerun counter between the smoke stacks and the 600th homer sign on the wall in right field are gone I'm assuming). But they've left the huge banner out front up and have put a little banner across it saying "Thank you Junior".

Does anyone think that he will be mentioned in any other way? Video tribute maybe?

He's gone, time to move on.

You think they honored Pete Rose on opening day 1979?

ditto.

I think the huge banner out front is plenty.

Yeah, nothing, at least not now. Maybe at the end of the season or when he retires or something like that, but nothing more.

Good point.

The gratitude for Junior has been flowing from this franchise since the day of the trade. For the good of all, it is time to move on. And this is coming from a solid Junior fan who wishes he were still here, even though I know what happened is for the best.

1.) When he retires.
or
2.) When the Reds face him and whatever team he is with.

The Reds have replaced the Griffey HR count board with a signboard that reads something like "Good luck Junior!"

That seems about right for now.

The 600 homerun sign on the RF wall is still there. Good. I was hoping they would keep that up.
