    griffey needs votes

    He's fallen out of the starting spot in the all star game. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

    Nope. And the only Red who does is Arroyo.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    You don't think that BP does?
    Benzinger backing and calling! And the 1990 world championship series belongs to the Cincinnati Reds!

    hey, he represents the reds...and he's the only chance we have at getting a starter....so I don't understand why people wouldn't vote for him.

    Because he isn't the best center fielder in the N.L.?

    How many casual fans know what OBP is? A lot less than those who know who Ken Griffey Jr. is I'm sure.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I think maybe 7 or 8 from what I can surmise.

    OTOH

    How many know who David Ross and Brandon Phillips are?

    Good point, and those two deserve to be there more than Griffey does. I think there should be a midseason all-star game chosen by the fans, and a post season all-star game chosen by MLB for what players had the best seasons.

    I shall not today attempt further to define what OBP is, but I know it when I see it.
