Re: Griffey Jr Traded to the White Sox
Griffey should go back to No. 24. Give Crede a car or something (you know, something small to show his appreciation). Who cares about No. 30... Griffey didn't even want that number at first with the Reds, and then even changed to No. 3 after a while. I know he said that was for his son, Trey, but if Griffey loved 30, he never would have changed it.
For the record, I still think it's lame that Tony Perez didn't allow Junior to "borrow" the No. 24 so to speak. It would have been a nice link to the BRM, especially since Perez and Griffey Sr. played together. It would have always been Tony's number with the Reds, but he was a pretty small man by not allowing Griffey to borrow it for a few years. Pretty insecure if you ask me.
