Every time I hear this, I think of the collision Cliff Floyd was part of in the late '90s with the Expos...the wrist/forearm injuries cost him the better part of 2 seasons. Griffey has not played 1B...IMO, potential for collisions is a real variable. I also do not believe making stretches at first will be easier on Griffey's legs than stopping and starting in the OF, but I do not have any way to quantify this statement.
I'd like to see him in a corner OF position to avoid injury; I guess we'll see what happens as the season goes on.
