    Re: It's not Griffey's fault

    Griffey is going to end this year with 30 Bombs and 90 RBI

    Mark me down, and he probably won't be traded...

    Someone here is going to say, wrong on Both statements, but i doubt it...

    People forget this Bob C is an emotional guy and LOVES, not LIKES Griffey...

    So Keeping Junior around is probably what he is going to do...

    He didn't Bring Walt Jocketty in here to restart another Fire Sale... I think this team is a buyer rather than a seller...

    I find it amazing everyone blames Junior for the last 8 years of Losing, and this year in paticular...

    This team is always missing a piece or 2, and they are always Glaring holes...

    Last year it was a Closer- Now we have Cordero... The rest of the Bullpen sucked too and it is still the same... It still needs to lose Fogg and Lincoln, and find someone reliable for the 7-8 Innings...

    Also... Right Handed Pop? Catcher? SS? Centerfield?

    Ok... No right handed power? The Reds have EE, who is more of a 6-7 Hitter than a 3-4-5 guy... Thankyou. The team has went with Phillips at Cleanup and he is not a Feared 4 hole Man?

    Catcher with Bako? Come on, I don't care how this guy handles pitchers, orif he batted .300 the first Month, he will end the season around .230

    SS> I still do not like the Gonzalez signing... Waste of Money... Remeber Managment thought that he would improve the pitching staff by bringing much needed Defense... It didn't matter, the pitching was still horrible 3 years ago. 2 years ago, and besides a few guys, still needs improved.

    Centerfield? The answer is Jay Bruce, but the team felt compelled to sign Corey Patterson for the Long term success in Cincinnati. That was Dry Humor.

    What I am trying to Post here is that Ken Griffey is not the problem. He has very little pieces around him and it is the Ownership over the Years, the Leadership if you will that has not been "Playing" up to PAR.

    Griffey took a below Market Value Salary and then defered a bunch of Money to help the Reds be competetive and bring in other Players. Although he was Hurt for A LOT of games... He has never recieved the full commitment of Managment to be succesfull at all...

    It is not Griffeys fault, and iif this team hadn't gotton Volquez... they would still probably be around 10 Wins by now. Just think if he was not here? Where would the Team be? So what else has the Front Office done to help this team?

    Yes he is!
    80% of the earth is covered by water. The other 20% is covered by Eric Davis.

    I hope your right Hondo and he does get on a hot streak and starts hitting because I still like Griffey, but I just don't see it anymore.
