    TeamClark, ignoring the potshots, is there any way you can clarify what it is you've told us?

    I'm having a hard time with the concept of big news that the media might not catch. Is this something that could affect Jr. staying with the team in this or next season? Is this something that might cause some sort of business shakeup up (e.g. GM, manager, COO, staff)? Is it something that involves warring factions on the club (e.g. "Sean Casey and I can't co-exist")?

    I'm not asking you to reveal more info than you think you should, but you've already dropped some fairly loaded hints. I'd just like to get an understanding of what the general flavor of this is or what the potential fallout might be. Right now you've got people speculating wildly as to what something "big" could be.

    I'll take your word for it that it was not your intent to do that. I've got no reason to believe otherwise. All I'm saying is, can you find some phrasing that gives us a clearer idea as to what sort of thing this is and what it's magnitude might be without spilling all the beans?

    I've been trying to find ways to give everyone an idea of what is going on. I have a sense of laoyalty to the Redszone family. Many of you have become close friends and I have left seats for many others during the 2001 season. My biggest loyalty is to Junior in this case. He told me some things as a friend and some as a writer. I'm doing my best not to cross any line. I would much rather someone else break this story and get the cold shoulder.

    Believe me I want to write the story as badly as you want to read it.

    The meat of the story involves the discussion with Jim Bowden. Most of which I just can not tell you. The outcome of the meeting, which is yet to be determined, would indeed have an effect on whether Junior remains a Red. If cooler heads prevail and certain measures are taken this will be a non-issue. To my knowledge the beat writers know about a meeting they just do not know what was said. If they write anyhting it will be that there was a meeting. I do not forsee that.

    Thanks for the response. That does clear up much of my confusion.

    Sounds like some sort of ultimatum. Fix something or I'm out of here. Fire Butcher. Fire Boone. Am I getting warm here?

    This chaos REALLY makes me want to stick around. What IF Griffey has demanded a trade? How many of you will turn on him? Turn back the clocks two years, and think back on what Seattle went through in the weeks leading up to the trade. Oh, the thought of the serious crow that could be potentially on your plate! I seriously, truly, completely live for just such an occasion.

    TC? I hate to use an old Clint Eastwood cliche, but please, MAKE MY DAY!!

    Get on with your life.
    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.

    I'm sure there's a car crash somewhere near your house for you to kill time at also.

    In court, I'll just blame it on Junior

    This was one heck of a post. It's like a soap opera.... I had to read it as it went on and on because I wanted to know so bad what is going on. I hope the cooler head prevail and this is a non-event.
    And This One Belongs to the REDS!!!
