This latest thing with Griffey Jr. really left a bad taste in my mouth.
It's not C Trent's fault that Griffey is upset over the way things happened in Cincinnati, and I would agree with most of what he said. Do you really want a reporter to go all George Grande and be a soft homer type? Just because he chose to interview Griffey doesn't make me mad. It shows a little bit of the man that some fans shunned and became a lightning rod because frustrated fans needed someone to blame.
I like the story because it isn't one another Cincinnati reporter would touch. A lot of the criticism of Griffey was unwarranted and fans and radio show hosts blew things out of proportion to make his life in this city very difficult. We had a potential Hall of Famer playing for us and many fans didn't appreciate that fact.
