    Let him know how much support he has from his Redszone fans.

    This thread will be as long as the roll call thread soon.

    Tell him to hit a homerun for me today, and then when it goes out of the park to run the bases backwards.

    I tried to calm him down last night. I need more credit hours in Psychology. Senior is still pretty pissed about his situation. Knowing what I know about that I can't blame him one bit.

    Let me get to work and find out if any of this has leaked.

    BTW, big news rarley makes it in the news BEFORE it happens. Most writers do not publish anything until it has happened. There are a few (Nightengale, Gammons) that go out on a limb and tell you what they hear right away. There is security in that. Fortunately I am not bound by an editor any longer. The only binding I have on this story is Junior himself.

    Y'all notice Team Clark has posted a half dozen responses since my 'retirement' guess, and he hasn't refuted it yet.

They have better stories about a two bit coach who didn't get a fair shake.

    You can rule out retirement.

    TC - can you just answer this question - is Griffey still happy to be a Red or he is discontent and could possibly want out???

    Maybe if we (and I mean media, fans, his teammates) just let Junior go out and play and quit dogging him, it would make for a much more fun relationship...

    Let me roll my theory out again. A trade to a Florida team. Sr says Jr's only here because he is. But now Sr's not really here.

    Jr and Sr could be a package to a Florida team. Although Tampa is way closer to Orlando, the Marlins probabaly make more sense as a trading partner.

    They have wealth of young pitchers, and an owner that needs to make a splash.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    If that happens a lot of pressure would be on Adam Dunn to make up for Jr's homeruns. I hope it is not about a trade.
