Don't get me wrong, I love Griffey, he is one of my all-time favorite players. However, I do feel there is something else deterring him from not playing (600) and that is a different argument to itself....
And I doubt Griffey pops greenies like Rose, or Morgan, and possibly Ripken did.
It's amazing what chemicals can do to keep you in the lineup.
