    My hunch is that Giffey has asked to be traded <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />

    Sorry for the sleepless night. I really have not slept yet myself.

    Someone tell '62 to start answering his phone so I don't have to leave messages for him on the board.

    Pink would be a nice change. Maybe a little Maroon mixed in with the Road uniforms.

    Cincinnati (AP) - In a stunning move, four teams today have pulled off a major trade involving players, coaches, and minor league instructors.

    Cincinnati has traded Ken Griffey Jr. to Detroit, Manager Bob Boone to Philadelphia, and Sean Casey to Pittsburgh. In return, the Reds received Dmitri Young, Pokey Reese, and minor league instructor Ron Oester.

    "Upon reading the quotes attributed to Ron Oester, we realized that we did in fact get rid of the wrong individuals," said Cincinnati GM Jim Bowden.

    "What this franchise really needs is a 3rd base coach who doesn't know how to give the "stop" sign to a baserunner. We also really need a middle infielder who swings like he's Mark McGwire, but posts offensive numbers that make de la Hoz giddy. And $28 million for an empty .300 hitting OF is a bargain in today's market."

    Bowden added, "That Junior guy really is nothing but dead weight. We're sick of guys who have 7 40+ HR and 8 100+ RBI seasons under their belts. His Gold Glove defense is incredibly over-rated, too."

    "And thank God I was able to move Casey after signing him to that contract. Within an hour after the signing, I felt like throwing up. He's Pittsburgh's problem now," said Bowden.

    Bowden did not have time to answer any questions. "I've got to go - I'm working on another multi-team deal that would bring back Steve Parris, Brett Tomko and Hector Carrasco, and all we'd have to do is give up Adam Dunn," said Bowden, who then left the podium and started dialing his cell phone.

    Hang in there, Junior. You'll get your 2,000th hit and your 500th homerun this season. Next year you'll open a new park with a short fence in front of sellout crowds and a larger payroll. You'll be the centerpiece of a great offensive team this year and one of the greatest offensive outfields ever in 2003 (according to some).

    Give us two years, and you'll want to play for many, many more.

    Everything that Junior says or does is scrutinized heavily by the local media. If TC isn't sure whether or not it's picked up, I doubt it's very big.

    TC, next time may I suggest leave out the "Big NEWS!!" from the subject line. I doubt if anyone would have gotten too jacked up about you wanting RFS62 calling you ASAP without that teaser.

    I have no idea if you will find out. If I had not spoken with him I wouldn't know. I'm not sure exactly who knows besides a few Reds front office personnel, a few players and of course Senior. As many leaks as there are in the clubhouse and front office maybe you will hear something sooner than later.

    After hearing from Dunn that Aaron Boone would make a great wife, Griffey is "into it"?

    All of this because I needed '62 to call me. Geeez. I wish I had a bat signal!!!

    Maybe things have cooled off today. If I talk to KGJ today I'll see what his moodis and if he is serious about what was discussed last night. I'll start a separate thread if I can post anyhting.

    TeamClark,

    If you talk to him, you work on calming him down too.

    If you talk to him, tell him we said "Hello". And see if he has any thongs.
