    My only wish is that the Brantley situation would be put to rest before he departs. It reaks of the Larkin situation with him leaving on bad terms.

    If the rumor is true (Dunn to the Rays), the Rays are definitely a good partner. There's not a team in baseball with better prospects than Tampa. I don't want to see Dunn go, but I think the return could be best there.

    I hope he's outta here. Just don't see where and how he fits into the Sox picture. If I'm running the Sox and I want to improve my team, I dont add Junior.
    Pending approval has got to mean that the Sox have to pick up his '09 option. 16 mill for THAT????

    I hope Jr understands that in Chicago he wont be the captain of the ship (that's Ozzie's personality/job) and therefore he's not guaranteed to bat in the first-inning. It could get ugly when Jr gets into Ozzie's doghouse next week after jogging out a groundball.

    With the way Konerko is hitting, I'd be shocked if it they didn't use him as a DH in a platoon with Paulie with Thome covering 1B when Junior plays.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Interesting stuff from the Sox board on mlb.com

    They are saying Jr and a reliever(Affeldt or Weathers) for Anderson and someone else.

    Clearly I don't know 2500 very well. Disregard previous post.

    I'd love to see Griffey win a World Series and accepting a trade to the White Sox would give him a very good chance at winning it all. The White Sox currently have the third best run differential in all of baseball (and only +2 behind the Red Sox for second place). They have as a good a chance as anybody at winning the World Series this year.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    I want no part of Brian Anderson unless he slots in behind Dickerson on the depth chart. He hasn't hit since 2005. Just bring up Dickerson and be done with it.

    I saw on the Sox board that there is a deal for Street pending the outcome of the Jr trade.

    I think it's just as ridiculous to absolve Griffey from all blame (his contract handcuffed the team for years, not to mention his injuries) as it is to put all blame on him. It's my belief the Reds would have done better without him--and no one was more thrilled than me when "the trade" happened.

    Sorry if this doesn't turn out to be true, but I just heard someone saying that Griffey turned the trade down.

    Let's be clear about this. Griffey did not handcuff this team with anything. The Reds traded for him. They told him they were committed to adding payroll. The fact is, they didn't. The team handcuffed themselves. Griffey did his best not to handcuff the team by taking less than fair market value. Stop trying to distort the facts here. And FWIW, don't mention the injuries because they weren't something he could help.
