Re: Philly fans appreciate Jr. Why don't we? (Warning: Rant)
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Fans are frustrating. On one end, we have one fan thinking that Jay Bruce is already better than Ted Williams and that Ted was overrated. On the other hand, we have Reds fans that rip on Griffey because he didn't come here and hit 50+ Hr's every year and beat Hank's record. He came to Cincinnati because he "wanted to come home". Unfortunately, for him and for us, he has had a lot of injuries since coming back, but he has also had to deal with a lot of fans bad mouthing him for this as well. It's all about disappoinment from the fans. We are seeing, IMO, the greatest CF that baseball has seen since Mays retired.
Griffey is nearing the end of the road for his career. I wanted more and hoped for more, but it didn't work out that way. It has been great to see his 400th, 500th, and very soon...his 600th as a Red.
When he retires from baseball, I will miss him...whether he retires as a Red or not.
