    Griffey Signs with Seattle

    Just read this, he signed a one year deal for a little over 2 million plus incentives. He will report to camp Friday. Good for Jr. I hope he has a great year.

    Daughtry's song "Home" seems appropriate.
    Who's on first?

    Pretty cool to see he's going back to Seattle to put on #24. I hope he has a great year.

    I'd love to be there when he's up to bat for the first time in front of the home crowd.

    Wouldn't it be fitting in a year marked with controversy over ARod and the other 103 who shall remain nameless, that Junior is the come back player of the year since his knee is fixed? Imagine the stories that will be written and the special spotlights on MLB Network and ESPN if he has a decent season.

    The baseball world will be pulling for him all season.

    Griffey will have a $2 million base salary and up to $2.5 million in incentives based on at-bats and attendance." The M's are hoping he'll draw an additional 200,000 fans to Safeco Field this season. I think that's a lock.

    Good for Griff. Definitely seems like the best decision.

    This is much better news than when it looked like he was going to go to Atlanta. I hope he is healthy and goes on a tear to finish out his career where he started.

    Hope they aren't expecting too much because Griffey is finished at this point.

    Thank goodness he didn't go to Atlanta. Even though my hatred of the Braves isn't so strong these days, Griffey realistically needs the AL. I hope he has a great year in Seattle. Good luck Jr.

    Skip Bayless just ripped Griffey on ESPN First Take, called him "lazy" and "pathetic" amongst other things.

    Pathetic is too harsh. I can accept lazy though.
