Re: Griffey Jr Traded to the White Sox
I think the most astonishing part of the whole day was Williams' statement that he plans on playing Junior in CF. Anyone who has watched Junior over the last year knows that he is not a CFer anymore and probably not even an OF.
I hope Junior goes to Chicago, is rejuvenated and leads the White Sox deep into the post season. The reality is probably more like the CF talk is just that and he is able to help them some in RF and as a DH.
My fear is that Junior receives a temporary rejuvenation by returning to CF and the hero's welcome he wll receive and pushes himself to show that he can still cover the center of the OF. If this occurs, I predict a the DL and a season-ending leg injury before Sept. rolls around
Whatever the future holds, I look for Junior to put him some strong nummbersthe next week to 10 days
