Its a question that is warranted. In terms of superstar status and league reputation Griffey is the Alpha-Dog of this team. I'd imagine most teams might value their #1 superstars input. Don't turn this into a "Is Jr. a primadonna" thread...it was just a question wondering aloud if the Reds spoke to Jr. about the hire...while unneccesary it is a distinct possibility.
