    Current Reds at Joe's Visitation

    If what I've heard is incorrect then I will apologize. This may have also been covered in the other threads, I'm not sure. I understand that of the current Reds only 1 came to Joe's visitation (Griffey,Jr). There is simply no excuse for this and if true this is beyond pathetic.

    I hope this is not true.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    I don't think it is a coincidence that just one player went to the visitation. The team probably sent one player as team representative. IIRC, this is how the Marge Schott visitation was handled.

    You guys should chill.

    Could they possibly have had a private viewing that players had an opportunity to attend outside of the public viewing?

    I think we all expected this from Casey. He is a class act. I just wish more players had his mindset.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    No one out side of Griffey Dunn and David Weathers even knew who Joe was. I really dont think this is a big deal.

    Only players with the reds during Joe's final (full time) season and now are

    Dunn
    Harang
    Freel
    Jr

    Weathers rejoined the Reds in 05 after playing in only 16 games with the reds in 1998

    If Junior would learn to temper his ego at times, along with his mouth, his better side would be shown more often. Stuff like bickering about playing CF, etc.........just doesn't go well with the fans.

    I agree Junior can be a class act.
    Who's on first?
