Re: Credit Where Credit Is Due For Griffey
First of all, very well done. The song and the slideshow are both terrific.
The one thing I have to take issue with, though, is that it's not just his injury problems that he's being criticized for -- it's his apparent refusal to accept that he is no longer the player he once was. I know this is supposed to be a positive thing we're focusing on here, but the fact is that it's difficult to continue thinking good things about him when it looks a lot like he's poised to singlehandedly ruin the next two seasons for the Reds. If he appeared the least bit openminded about moving to RF and batting 5th, I for one would be far more optimistic about this coming year. I realize that as a fan I probably don't really know what's going on but it looks to me like every time it's brought up, he doesn't want to hear any of it.
Okay, enough of that; sorry. Honestly, another great job, and here's hoping he stays healthy enough that we'll all be able to enjoy the song as much as it should be.
