I don't see the big deal. It's not like his being there affects the outcome in any way at all. "Supporting your teammates" seems a little hokey, no offense. These guys are all well paid to perform their craft and shouldn't need injured players around to keep the vibe up or perform better.
When Griffey comes off the DL, I know he'll give 100%, because that's the way he has been for his entire career. Until that moment, I just want him to concentrate on getting off the DL. Anything else is totally secondary.
