Griffey was fun to watch but he was awful in the outfield. His best days were behind him and him hitting in the 3 hole hurt. It was fun going to the stadium to watch one of the greatest players of all time but the Reds are better off without him.
It's a sad day because one of the greatest players ever is no longer going to play for my favorite team. He ain't like he used to obviously and I hope he accepts and succeeds iin obtaining his ring but there's nothing wrong with being sad to see him leave.
