I would pay some of Griffey's salary to get that speedy CFer (somebody tell me his name) and a solid pitching prospect.
If you want to realistically deal Junior, you have to eat some of his salary.
No one is going to trade for Griffey with the idea of him playing CF IMO, especially not the White Sox who value defense a great deal. Last year the trade would have worked for them b/c they could have put KG at DH, but now they have Thome, so that ship has sailed IMO.
