    Sox lineup, Griffey to wear No. 17

    Sox lineup, Griffey to wear No. 17

    By Mark Gonzales - 3:17 p.m., updated 5:45 p.m.

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Here's the White Sox's lineup Friday night at Kansas City:

    Cabrera ss
    Pierzynski c
    Quentin lf
    Dye rf
    Thome dh
    Ramirez 2b
    Griffey cf
    Swisher 1b
    Uribe 3b
    Vazquez p

    Originally, Griffey said he'd wear jersey number 17 Friday night, and then switch to 30 on Saturday...with Nick Swisher will wear No. 30 Friday night, then switch to No. 1 on Saturday.

    But now: Griffey said he'd stick with No. 17 so Swisher can keep No. 30.

    "I don't want to be a disruption to the team," Griffey said.

    It's also a relief to Swisher's marketing group and his "Dirty Thirty" merchandise.

    He wanted Doggie to give up his retired #24, but now he doesn't want to disrupt the team and Nick Swisher. The new and improved Junior.
    As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

    Surprised they put Griffey in CF, brutal for the Sox pitchers.

    I might need some help, but I don't remember Griffey wanting to give up #24. I could be wrong thou.
    because at the end of the day, they still are the Chicago Cubs, and they will figure out a way to screw this whole thing up--Marty B.

    Junior's been the heart and soul of the offense tonight.

    He knocked in the only run of the game through 5 innings by either team in the 2nd inning. Then in the 6th, he ignited another rally by knocking in the game's 2nd Run and then scoring the 4th run.

    Good debut for him. I wish him well. But, I'm glad he's gone.
