Re: Great article on Griffey
The thing with Jr is that he still has the passion for the game. You can see it.
No one denies that Jr, or any ballplayer, when they reach age 36, has lost a step. He's not the Jr of several years ago - that's obvious.
But IMO, a "lost a step" Jr still plays the game alot smarter then alot of OFers I've seen.
And I thoroughly love watching players like Jr, who due to the injuries and the list of doubters, play the game, not to go after records, but to prove his doubters wrong.
To me, that is what drives/motivates Jr the most any more.
He already has the records and HOF birth with nothing else to prove.
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
