Re: Congrats JR
Yeah, Jr. has thin skin and always has. So, it encourages idiots to ride him at the ballpark even more. I guess the big surprise is that the most wonderful baseball city in the history of the game has idiots too
But, man, what a player!!! The impact he has had on this team in the limited amount of time he has played is incredible. The Reds had a real tough month of May, but it seems like Jr. has come back and helped to breath new life into this team. I never felt like it was collapsing like in years past, because the pitching was decent. But, if you didn't have a Ken Griffey Jr. on your team in the middle of a penant race, wouldn't you want one?
The club is deep enough into his contract now that it barely matters if they deal him to get out from underneath his contract. I haven't heard Castellini or Krivsky or even Allen complain about money once since the new ownership took over. I am glad the kid is still here, and he is playing like a man who is bent on proving something. If it takes some loud mouth drunk in a dump like St. Louis to keep him stoked, so be it.
