    The question at this point is, "What Do You Do With Junior?"

    He can't play centerfield anymore without being a physical liablity to himself and a liability defensively to the Reds. You can't move him to a corner position without displacing Kearns, Dunn or Casey. Even if you displaced one of them, you could also being taking playing time away from Willy Mo Pena.

    IMO, Griffey is a DH. Nothing more. So if you're the Reds, do you package 40+million to a team like the Devil Rays to just move on and go in a different direction. Or do you keep him on the roster and consider him a fourth outfielder?
    If you think small, you'll go nowhere in life.

    Yes to #1
    No to #2

    I think it would be way to disruptive to have him on the bench and not be playing him.

    Now is not the time to trade Jr.

    But yourself in the other teams' shoes. Would you trade for anybody that has had all those leg surguries and is just coming off another? Even if the salary was only 2-3 million/year?

    Actually, that is a good question.. If you were the GM, at what salary point would you take Jr now (if at all)?

    There's really nothing to do but hope he's healthy this year. At least he plays well when healthy. It could be worse.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
