I am not sure anyone is posting much about this subject. I thought I would bring it up with Jay Bruce waiting in the wings. I believe Bruce will shortly be sent down to AA, but it is possible he stays in AAA the rest of the year. We have Griffey signed for 6.5 million next year, and then we have a option for Griffey in 2009. I believe the Reds will keep one of them on the payroll, but they may not be able to keep both, especially with Bruce taking an outfield spot shortly. I am not sure I heard right on the 6.5 million for Junior, but that would be rather economic. My question is this: Would you pick up Griffey's option in 2009? I believe his option salary is 6.5 million (just like 2008), and with the way he has played this year it might be worth it to pick up his option one more year.However, he is getting older, and the chance for injury may cause some to buy out his contract. I think it is a discussion that would be good to have, especially with all the trade winds swirling around Adam. We may need Griffey in the short term until Bruce is ready.
