<strong>I was referring to Encarnacion, Mateo, Wily Mo, possibly Kearns, et al. Would you get off of trading KGJ already? I am sick of hearing about it. Griffey is more than just a 5-tooler. He is a franchise player and puts people in the seats. Griffey is necessary. He is our best offensive and defensive player. You don't trade the cornerstone, you trade the loose parts.</strong></font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">LGJ, don't worry. Nobody (on this thread anyways) is in any way suggesting that we trade Griffey. They are suggesting we trade someone else
They are actually complementing Jr by saying that he is really the only legitimate 5 tool outfielder we have on the team because he is the only one that actually produces with all five tools. Everyone else under the "5-tool" moniker is just raw talent who has done little to the ML level so far.
