Re: Griffey's K
Nothing should happen to him. This organization allows Junior to not hustle when it seems like an out is gong to be made. This has been the way for the last two seasons... not something that just happened in the 1st inning yesterday.
* Also consider that the man was 28.9% (2 of the 7 total hits) of the offense yesterday.
* Also consider that no one on the REDS got a basehit after that strikeout until leadoff hitter Ryan Freel singled w/ 2 outs in the 3rd inning. So did it cost the REDS a run(s) or just cost them a bit of pride?
There will be those who blow this way-way-way out of proportion. And then there will be some who see that the play really meant nothing except the REDS are willing to allow this to ensure the man does not go down running while making outs. Really... it is not a big deal.
Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
