Good questions, Cedric, and I hope much of what you were told and what was implied actually comes to fruition next season. Replacing Griffey with a very capable or outstanding defensive center fielder - Deno comes to mind
- would be a massive step for further improving the team's defense.
You're definitely right about George Grande too. While many don't care for George Grande's announcing style, myself included, it's imperative to note that he's an exceptionally nice guy.
