    Ken's on the Phone!

    Hal McCoy reports that Krivsky had his first conversation with Griff yesterday. In today's Dayton Daily News, he writes:

    During his wild, wild first days, Krivsky had his first encounter with Ken Griffey Jr., a phone call that went like this.

    "Hello, this is Ken."

    "Ken who?"

    "Kenny from area code 407."

    "You must have the wrong number?

    "Who is this?"

    "Wayne Krivsky, general manager of the Cincinnati Reds."

    "Well, this is Ken Griffey Jr."

    Griffey wasn't certain he had the right number and didn't want to acknowledge who he was until he was certain he had Krivsky.

    "I was all wrapped up in calls about Dunn's contract and told Griffey I'd call him back," said Krivsky. "I called and apologized, but we both had a good laugh and a great talk."

    "My mission is to be the ray of hope, the guy who stands out there on that beautiful field and owns up to his mistakes and lets people know it's never completely hopeless, no matter how bad it seems at the time. I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton
