Re: Griffey Jr Traded to the White Sox
I know we're on page 24, so maybe someone already said this.
Are we sure that Griffey would have approved a trade if Krivsky made it a year ago or if O'Brien made it 5 years ago?
I don't think that's certain. But I agree that this was the right move, and I'm not sure they could have expected much more in return.
How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
