    Will Griffey start 2007 in Centerfield?

    I'm going to say that he will NOT.

    Interested to hear others thoughts, but I truly believe Krivsky will not allow Griffey to be the CF'er in 07.

    If he does, he will have lost almost all credibility in my eyes.

    How hollow will his proclamations of the importance of defense ring if his CF'er has the worst zone rating of any CF'er in the major leagues?

    Denorfia should already be penciled in, but like I said in the other thread, I don't think they have the nerve to upset Jr.

    If he's healthy, Jr is your opening day CF. I vote "yes".

    Super.

    I voted no although I won't be surprised if he does. I really don't see how Krivsky can allow him to play CF while preaching how important defense is.

    Unless they find another option out of the system, yes he will.

    Well, there are better options in-house but I tend to agree with you. It will likely take a "name" player from outside the Reds system to force the change.

    This is 100% pure tea leaf reading.

    But I think the recient spate of articles where Jr proclaims that he will be in CF may backfire on him. Narron would prob bend to Jr's demands, but no so sure about Krivsky.

    But I think the person Jr should be warry of upsetting is BC. I have absoutley nothing to base this on other than a gut fealing, but he doesn't strike me as the type of person who likes issues played out in the press. And with a player of Jr's caliber, BC would get involved in a heartbeat, IMO.

    Like I said, it's total shot in the dark, but if Jr overplays his hand it might hurt his case more than help.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    He will be in center.

    And Jim Bowden will be chuckling somewhere.

    Could the Reds live with Junior in CF if Freel and Deno are playing the corners? Would all the range in RF and LF help offset the severe lack of it in CF? Just curious.

    And that's a big problem. When the passengers start driving the bus, they are going to miss a few stops.

    I hope not.

    I have a sinking feeling that he will though.

    I voted yes, begrudingly. I really hope not, but I just don't have faith that they'll force the move.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    If I could have just 1 birthday wish, or christmas wish, or something along those lines.... please please please no Junior in CF in 2007.

    Maybe the tooth fairy could hook us up.
