I am so sick of WLW turning everything into a joke and I can't imagine why Griffey would ever want to have anything to do with this city and the half ass radio station that broadcasts the team's games, not to mention the blustering announcers hired by the Reds.

    From a baseball standpoint, this trade makes perfect sense, regardless of what we get in return. Due to the circumstances that have occurred since 200, the contract has been long an albatross for both parties. But if I'm Griffey, I shake the dust from my feet and get the heck out of Dodge.

    He showed Brantley up with his bat....I have no problem with that.

    I agree with you. I hope he goes (accepts the trade) and I hope he ends up in the World Series. That might offset the sadness of his tenure with the Reds.

    Sad Day for the REDS. After such a good game too. Hopefully the REDS get something in return but I don't think so.

    I see the Junior bashers are out in full force.

    If it is true sorry to see you go Junior - I hope to see you back here for a REDS Hall of Fame induction maybe I'll get to see more of you in the AL towns. You have made the last eight years of watching REDS baseball a pleasure and for you and your family I hope the future brings many more enjoyable years.

    I bet most of the clubhouse thought showing him up was, but that Brantley's comments were unprofessional.

    I use unprofessional, as the word filter would asterisk out the word I wanted to use.

    I love the heck out of Griffey but I hope he approves this deal. It not only gives him a chance to win a World Series but it opens a spot for Chris Dickerson to show what he's got in CF.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    I wonder if trading Griffey increases the chances of re-signing Dunn.

    Although I assume we will eat some of Griffey's salary in the deal, we may still free up enough money to be able to afford to keep Dunn. Also, it will be all the more important to keep Dunn's bat around.

    I didn't hear the commercial you're talking about on WLW, but if true.....what a joke.

    There's no chance he doesn't approve this trade.
