Re: Griffey Jr Traded to the White Sox (Pending Griffey Approval)
This makes sense for everyone involved. I assume the Reds and Chisox would divide up the buy out money for KG's option year, so cash will likely go with KG in the deal. The more cash the Reds pay, the better the prospect in return, I'd guess. If the Sox are paying the buyout, I wouldn't expect much of a player in return.
Only hang up I see is the lack of an obvious starting position for KG on the Chisox. He may be unhappy going there as a bench player, which could be what they have in mind for him.
