You're an optimist.
Scott's agent will probably look wise to direct him to the Reds. I would be very surprised if Griffey stays healthy all year AND nobody gets traded. One of the two will happen, almost certainly, and if it does happen, Scott should get 400 plate appearances.
I don't know what to think of the signing. Certainly if last year is all he has left, then this is kinda a waste.
The bigger story is Naehring's demotion. And yes, it's absolutely a demotion.
