    Clearly, Griffey has not been the player we all hoped he'd be when he got to Cincinnati. However, to say that he "brought his losing ways from Seattle" is just an asinine statement.

    Does Griffey's $4 million buyout for 09 vanish if he's traded?

    Not to mention that 2000, Jr.'s first season here, was the last year the Reds finished above .500.

    Havent heard a 'turn down' story yet.

    Griff would be a fool to not approve. He might be a man without a team in '09 and then have to take a one yr deal from somebody for 5 mill plus incentives IF he really wants to play.

    Folks on Sox board are saying Junior has approved and only remaining obstacle is a physical.

    Speculation on return to the Reds centering on CF Brady Anderson and reliever Nick Massett.

    Brady Anderson? I hope he brings the 52 homer season and the 90210 sideburns!

    I am guessing that the Reds are including a reliever in the deal. I can't imagine there will be no physical ... there isn't time.

    Not that I know of.

    Griffey's pretty much owed his 2008 pro-rated salary plus the $4 mil buyout. I don't see the Reds sending enough cash to cover both; they may pay the rest of the 2008 salary, but I'm hoping that the White Sox will at least cover the buyout.
