    Griffey in 2004

    I was wondering what everyone's predictions will be for him whether it'd be getting hurt or statistical wise?

    For what it's worth.....I think Griffey will remain healthy and put up 45+ HRs along with 110+ RBIs.
    If you think small, you'll go nowhere in life.

    That old saying "follow the trend" would lead me to believe that Griffey will get hurt in 2004. Hopefully, it will be minor and still allow him to post semi-big numbers: .280 35 HR 110 RBI

    All I want is one injury-free (for the most part...major-free at least) season. Just one. Growing up, he was who I wanted to be...all I want is one injury-free season.

    I agree with Krusty, but I do believe that if Griffey shows good health and performance as some of us expect that he will be traded because of his contract, medical history and risk.

    Cross your fingers: Brian Goldberg, agent for Reds CF Ken Griffey, says Griffey is way ahead of schedule in recovering from shoulder surgery and on schedule in recovering from ankle surgery. Griffey could have been ready to start spring training on January 1, Goldberg says.


    I saw this and am not sure if someone else has posted it but here goes anyway... This sounds good.

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    Like some others, I find it difficult to believe that Griffey will stay healthy the whole year in 2004. I DON'T believe that he will spend the majority of 2004 on the DL, however. That being the case, my projections for Junior in 2004 are: .282 avg, 31 HR, 89 RBI. Anything more than that, I would consider a bonus.

    154 Games. 42 HR's 133 RBI. Sit out 5 games with a tight Hammy in August. Junior will also hit .295 and have an OBP of .444. This is what the crystal ball says.

    Adam Dunn .248 47HR's and 116 RBI. 158 K's and 98 BB's.

    Kearns .311 28HR and 79 RBI. 131 Games played. Kearns goes down in August for a month.

    Griff and Kearns go to ALL Star Game.

    Team Clark:

    I love the optimism. I wish I could work around people as optimistic as you all day.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    .
    You might want to see if the thing is plugged in

    Junior has never OBPed more then 408 and has a career OBP of .379

    .360-.380 sounds about right to me

    I think this is the make or break year for Dunn. He'll either move forward and start to live up to those early expectations, or he'll be exposed as just a marginal HR hitter who strikes out way too much.
