Griffey will be recognized at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington during a news conference Sunday preceding Game 4 of the World Series. He will become only the 12th recipient of the award, which was created in 1998, and the first since 2007

This is a direct slap to the face for Barroid Bonds, AND I LOVE IT

The longer Griffey is retired, and the more exposed the tainted era of steroids becomes, the more we will come to appreciate a guy who did it right, and simply had his body break down, but put up astounding impressive numbers.

Griffey would have had the record had he taken steroids. He missed so much time being injured. Really wish he could have dropped some weight from 2006-2008. Really enjoyed seeing him in a Reds uniform and thankful I got to see him in person many times. Still the prettiest swing I have ever seen.
