    Griffey hurt-Lower abdominal strain

    Griffey hurt his groin it looked like coming up to throw the ball in the bottom of the 8th.. he also looked like he did something as he struck out and maybe thats when he hurt it... the Cubs fans gave him a standing ovation as he walked off the field

    DONT bash Griffey.. he had a great year and if he is done for the rest of the season, we will have to wait till next year for his 600th!

    The Reds should bring up Bruce for the last few games..seee what he can do.

    I can't speak for others though....others whom we haven't seen around in a while, perhaps...

    I doubt the Reds bring up Bruce because this is what Fay had to report last week:

    Bruce is home in Texas. He'll go to instructional league in about a week, then to Arizona to train with USA Team for the tournament in Taiwan.
    I'd love to see him up here and think the at bats are available now more then ever.. guess we'll wait and see.

    Thanks Matt.. would that be a less serious injury than a groin strain?

    This sucks for 2 reasons...

    1.) Looks like he's done for the season (when he was super close to having a healthy season).

    2.) Maybe more importantly, it's hurts his trade value. Although this doesn't appear to be a serious injury, it brings back into the picture those doubts about his ability to stay healthy.

    drives me crazy how people never can think about anything positive! he played just about the whole season!!.. he beat all those doom sayers hoping he got hurt in April/May on there dang "day Jr gets hurt pool" gesh i bet some on here would have booed instead of showing class for what he did like the Cubs fans giving him a standing ovation!!

    Should we trade all the offesne too and have 1-0 loosses and another thing, im tired of anybody that performs well, people on this site want to TRADE them!!
    I'm done venting!

    Get well soon Jr, i thank you for your 2007 season!

    I'm not diminishing the season he's put together and I want him to stay healthy regardless. I root for the guy, he's on my team. I want to see him remain healthy and continue to put together great seasons.

    However, I am looking at it also from a realistic standpoint. Griffey Jr. is not part of the Reds long term picture. Jay Bruce is destined to be his replacement whether that be next season or not. It makes a lot of sense to move Griffey and I would like to see the Reds get as much value as possible for him. An injury, and a minor one at that, does not help the cause.

    I agree with most of what is sad.. Junior had one heck of a year and there is not one person on this board that doesn't stop and watch Junior bat when he comes to the plate. For being the fan favorite Junior is.. fans sure do want him traded as of late. Mind you Griffey has a no-trade clause and he came here to be near family and be close to his Florida home. Junior is here for the remainder of his contract and that's not a bad thing.

    like it or not the reds will not move griffey unless he asks for it. its not that hard to understand. also don't be surprised when the reds pick his option up for 2009 as well. thanks ken for a great 2007 season.

    From C. Trent's blog:

    Wednesday, September 19, 2007
    Griffey update

    CHICAGO -- It's a lower abdominal strain and Griffey will return to Cincinnati instead of going to San Francisco.

    "You guys know as much as I do," Griffey said.

    Griffey said he didn't remember anything after the initial shock of pain. He said he knew he threw it, but not sure where.

    "The best way I can describe it is it felt like somebody bungee jumped off my right nut," Griffey said.

    Griffey said his groin area had been bothering him for a couple of weeks, but it was something he has been playing through.

    "It’s been a little sore for a while," Griffey said. "But it’s the situation where the games don’t mean anything for us, but you’ve got to go out there and try to finish strong and hopefully make it hard on other teams. That’s what we were trying to do. I knew I wasn’t going to play much over the next week until Chicago came back (to Cincinnati). It was just one play."

    Adam Dunn said he's surprised more people haven't gotten hurt at Wrigley because the outfield is in such bad shape.

    "That outfield is dangerous. I’m surprised more people don’t get injured out there. It’s as bad as there is. It’s worse than playing in a parking lot," Dunn said. "It looked like they had a monster truck rally. There’s potholes. It’s bad. It’s unsafe."

    Yep, my thoughts exactly. If he could have gotten through a season for the first time in FOREVER that would have been enough. But nope...

    Re: Griffey hurt-Lower abdominal strain

    I don't think this will much affect Jr.'s trade value. He's still had a good year.

    Plus, since the Reds have nothing to play for they can legitimately say they're shutting him down because it's not worth aggravating the groin pull at this juncture of the season.

    If the team does shut him and it finds a match for him on the trade market this winter, this could be Jr.'s last game in a Reds uni. If so, I'll echo what I said in the game thread - thanks for being a standup guy during some real falldown for this franchise.

    Re: Griffey hurt-Lower abdominal strain

    Junor being Junior--if he can come back he will. Whether that's wise or not is immaterial at this point. It's more important to Junior than it is to thre Reds.

    M2 is probably correct. It will not hurt his trade value, but he's not going to be traded. Not on the crusp of 600 HR's on a team that is desparate for wins and reasons for fans to come out to the old ballpark.

    But I'll say this. I've never understood why people want to blame Junior for injuries. People, and especially athletes, get hurt. I've heard a lot of skuttlebut about Josh Hamilton not being reliable and Freel being fragile, but that doesn't matter. Griffey gets hurt and it's the end of the world. The man played 144 games this year and performed well. He hit 30 HR's and drove in nearly 100 runs. You want to know how many teams would kill for that? The man is near 40 years old and still puts up these numbers. And some want to send him away for a couple of infield vets (or relief pitchers) and a turkey when his contract is such that he is probably underpaid for his statistiscs.

    Yes, Junior's time is just about up, but even in the twilight of his career, he does things that many younger players do. No, he doesn't run so fast these days and many want to crucify him for mis-playing balls and not hitting .350, but this guy is amazing. To replace those RBI's would require twice as much as we're paying him, and besides, he's about to attract more attention to the Reds than any of the replacements many are talking about. Let him play out his contract and leave him alone. It's the human thing to do.
