In the just concluded Cubs series, Junior getting thrown out at third base in game two was the worst. He was given a double and rightfully so but becoming the 1st out of the inning when Mark Berry tried to stop him at second, Jr. kept running and was thrown out by an easy distance.
Today, after hitting a ball off the wall either Griff' wasn't hearing Billy Hatcher's instructions or misinterpreting the signals from Berry to Hamilton & Keppinger and KGJ got himself trown out trying to get back to first.
To be fair, Griffey's play in the outfield today was great! Just ask Derrick Lee. What I'm saying is this - Ken Griffey Jr. should know better than to be such an easy out(s) on the base-paths. I know, this poor base running isn't limited to Griffey this year but Geez Louise why don't the Reds have a clue? Do we just have unintelligent ballplayers?
