    Griffey Out Tonight-- "General Soreness"

    To avoid getting this bad boy locked, I'll avoid posting the lineup. Fay had this to say:

    Ken Griffey Jr. is out. General soreness. I believe it's his knee, although he wouldn't say specifically. He may be able to play tomorrow. "Hopefully," he said.

    Dusty Baker would not say if Griffey is available to pinch-hit. "This ain't football," he said. "I don't want Charley (Manuel) to know."

    And a quote from Dusty.
    “That’s why we took him out of the game yesterday,” Baker said. “He was ailing a little bit. That’s the time you don’t want to take a chance.

    “If you start favoring something, then you end up blowing something out, so we’ll try to spot him. He wants to play every day.”

    I know how Griffey feels. I have general soreness nearly every morning when I get up for work.

    The team is 1 game under .500. I doubt he wants to sit. and he's been heating up too.

    The Reds will have to pull off a HUGE turnabout or they will come home back in the cellar.

    IIRC they stated on TV a few days ago that his knee was bothering him a bit.

    Oh I don't think it's the case at all. If anyone's accustomed to reaching milestones on the road, it's Junior.

    I just saw a chance to play the game and frankly, I'm in need of some more Turtle Wax.

    Hopefully Jr. is alright. These little day-to-day type injuries have put him out for some time in the past. What if he hits 600 in Florida? What's the saying? If he hits 600 and no one sees it does it really count?

    I'll resist the urge to say this could be a blessing in disguise.

    Whoops.
