SARASOTA, Fla. -- I'll have more on this later and in Saturday's paper, but Ken Griffey Jr. said he feels good and his hand is fine. He's waiting for Dr. Kremchek to get here to reevaluate his hand.
With the assembled media around, he wouldn't address the particulars of his injury -- at first saying he was fishing with his family and caught a bullshark, it jumped into his boat and he was defending his kids. That, obviously -- literally and figuratively, was a fish story. The real story? Well, just wait a bit.
Also, on a possible position change, he said he wasn't going to talk about it and didn't want Jerry Narron to have to talk about it every day of spring training. "Does it matter what I think?" he said. "What we decide will be behind closed doors."
In our meeting with Wayne Krivsky, the Reds GM said any position move would be the manager's decision and not his.
