The White Sox's trade for Ken Griffey Jr. is perplexing some baseball people. "He can't play,'' one AL exec said. "I think it's a huge mistake.'' It remains uncertain how the White Sox will utilize Griffey -- assuming he approves the trade -- but don't be surprised if White Sox GM Ken Williams has more surprises. He and A's GM Billy Beane are the biggest dealmakers. Maybe Williams just got bored and had to do something. At least he got a longtime favorite of his. It's still to be worked out how he fits all his hitters into the lineup or whether one of them will go in a companion trade. Griffey once rejected a trade to the Mets (before he came to the Reds), but with his Reds contract expiring anyway, he'd look pretty bad to turn down a deal to play for a first-place team.
