    Griff miffed over double switch -- minor tiff?

    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=2976559


    CHICAGO -- If Cincinnati Reds slugger Ken Griffey Jr. has his way, he won't be involved in another double switch.

    Griffey was replaced on defense during a double switch in the eighth inning of Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Chicago Cubs. Griffey, who has won 10 Gold Gloves, was surprised by Reds interim manager Pete Mackanin's decision.

    "It was the first [time in my career] and it will be the last," he said before Wednesday's game against the Cubs.

    Griffey, who ranks sixth on the career list with 590 career home runs, is hitting .274 with 27 home runs and 74 RBIs.

    I really could care less if the cry baby had his feeling hurt. Maybe if he didnt have 2 base running blunders last night Mackanin might have thought he was capable of not screwing up.

    some think this attitude is the reason he has played on few winning teams.

    Griff should be seen and not heard.

    It *WILL* be the last??

    Who is the manager of this ball club?

    Is Griffey going to quit the team if Mackanin calls for him to double-switch again?

    Griffey's coming off horribly here. He's not 21 anymore.

    Would you be part of that "some"? I think he has played on few winning teams because he has rarely had much talent around him, mostly during his Reds years.

    just an old veteran with his feelings hurt. I'll be the first to admit i am a big griffey fan but this is something very minor to be mad at.

    Jr. looked tired out there yesterday. Those base running blunders revealed a player who needed a break.

    13 all star nominations, 10 gold gloves, 7 silver slugger awards, 1 MVP, 1 all star game MVP, the 1997 Major League Player of the Year, and soon enough an induction into the Hall of Fame. Other than that, nothing.

    The Old Red Guard and the people here are making too much out of this, it seems he was joking around
