Re: Griffey Jr Traded to the White Sox
I'll tell you what, this is sad and depressing. It's hit me pretty hard. I knew this was going to be his last season in Cincinnati but I honestly didn't expect him to be traded. I'll never forget the day he was acquired by the Reds...I can't even begin to describe how excited I was that my favorite player growing up was going to play for my favorite team. That doesn't happen very often. It's hard to believe it's already been eight plus years since the trade brought The Kid to Cincinnati. And now it's over. I've said it a hundred times, I would still make that trade even knowing what I know today. I thought that was the start of a big playoff run for the Reds and a WS title or two but things never materialized that way, though it was no fault of Griffey. He still left me with plenty of great memories. I'm proud to say I was in attendance for his first homerun as a Cincinnati Red.
Thank you Ken Griffey Jr. for everything.
I miss Adam Dunn.
