    "well WV, Griffey aint exactly tearing the cover off the ball in 04 is he now?"

    Griffey: .888 OPS for the season

    WELL above average for a ML centerfielder.

    IIRC, he was told by his Dad to never one-up the pitcher that threw the pitch.

    Rumor- Come on man, you know you don't honestly think managers feel the same about Griffey now as they did in his younger days. Maybe they should, but they don't

    Like I said, everything Jr. does is magnified. I wonder if Adam had done this if there would be as big of a story? Or if the other team's manager was Bobby Valentine instead of St. Jack?

    There's a quote in the Atlanta Constitution in April by Jack McKeon.

    The discussion was about Griffey's injuries for the last three Aprils.

    Jack said, that with no disrespect intended, Griffey just isn't Bonds anymore.

    He wasn't showing up the pitcher. He was showing up the person who called for the IBB to Sean.

    And sending a little message to every other manager in the league at the same time.

    It seems pretty ignorant to diss a manager that led the lowly marlins to a world series championship, much less the last playoff contending season for our beloved Reds. It's trader jack, not asinine (one s) jack or dipstick jack.

    Perhaps Griffey took it personal (as a Mckeon slight), but did not Williams make the same move twice? Time to let it go.

    Well Jack sure got that right. Jr didn't sink to the steroid use like Bonds. At least when Jr get to 500, they will be legit.

    I reserve the right to disagree with your assertion that 99% of the other managers, including those during the injury riddled last three seasons, intentionally walked someone ahead of Griff in that situation. Williams and McKeon are the first ones in years. That means that hundreds of times that situation has come up and no one made that "percentages" move. He has now showed them that it was just as bad a move now as it was then.

    Wasn't Casey or Dunn walked to get to Jr. when the Reds were on the west coast?

    EDIT: Just looked at the game logs and that didn't happen in any of the games out there.

    It is a percentage move, this time Griffey won, if the pitcher struck him out and pumped his fist in Juinors direction would he be being "Feisty" "Aggressive" or simply just being a prick?

    By "my" POV he "Glanced" or "Looked" over that way.

    Did he "Glare"? isn't it an opinion what a "Glare" is anyway?

    Maggie Simpson "Glares" at the baby with one eyebrow, was the loathing in Juinors glance equal to that?
