    Griffey Says Yankees Rumors, "Crazy"

    From today's Dayton Daily News:

    MIAMI | Ken Griffey Jr. shook his head, rolled his eyes and asked, "Where do they come up with this stuff? I don't know where stuff like this starts."

    ESPN.com reported Griffey said he would agree to a trade to the New York Yankees.

    "That's crazy," he said. "Why does it always have to be me? I just want to play baseball."

    Three years remain on Griffey's contract after this season. Because he has more than 10 years in the majors and five years with the same team, Griffey can negate any trade the Reds try to make.

    And he thinks the team might try.
    Griffey's opinion on Kearns rumors:


    There is another rumor floating. Rebuffed by his attempt this spring to acquire Wily Mo Pena, Washington Nationals general manager Jim Bowden reportedly is asking about Kearns.

    "Doesn't surprise me," Kearns said.

    Griffey is a huge Kearns fan and

    believes trading him would be a monumental mistake.

    "He is a 30-to-40 home run guy," Griffey said. "He is the best defensive player of the four of us and he is the only one who hits to all fields."

    With our team now if we trade for Griffey we are an absolute joke.
    Life is good!

    Of course, it is a joke. Griffrey is done. No one wants his broken down body. He is a shell of his former self. It is the curse of Peter Gammons.

    Broken down body.

    Best years behind him.

    Bad contract.

    I'm stunned he isn't already here....

    Painful but true? Anyway, I surely hope the rumours are indeed "crazy."

    The only way the Yanks should do this is if they can go get rid of Kevin Brown. Even though his contract is up at the end of the year, the quicker he is out of the Bronx the better

    Griffe has spent years whining about how when he was a kid Billy Martin wouldn't let him in the clubhouse, how he didn't want to come to the Yankees because of this. Now that he has flopped in his hometown he is supposed to want to come here? Why, so he can save money on phone bills to BristoltoHarold Reynolds complaining about ESPN showing his strikeouts and Jim Edmonds playing better than him? No thanks. Well, maybe if they take Giambi.

    This would be insane if we tried to get him. Haven't we learned our lesson with Kevin Brown and Jared Wright?
    "Maybe someday you'll be our shortstop and your number will hang out here (in Monument Park),'" recalled Cashman. "He's the only one I ever said that to, and it's actually going to happen."

    I would not trade Kevin Brown for Griffey. We would not have anyone for the rotation and too many guys for the DH, 1B, CF combo. The only way we trade for Griffey is if we trade Giambi for him and send some money their way. I would like to make that trade.
    Hoping Rivera can pitch forever!

    The hell with Griffey. He could have been a Yankee years ago and would have had a few rings by now if he'd gotten over his ridiculous childhood grudge against Billy Martin. Let him rot on the Reds. I hope he never goes to the playoffs for the rest of his career.

    Yeah he's a terrible person.
    God forbid someone doesn't want to go to the Yanks.
    I think it has more to do with the fact he wanted to play in his hometown.

    Ken Griffey Jr.?? Please! What, is Cesar Geronimo not available? Is Bake McBride previously engaged? What about Warren Cromartie? I here we could get him! I've always liked Oscar Gamble. Let's get him! I hear Chet Lemon's free.

    Somebody stop me before I reference another '70s/80s outfielder again!!

    There is no "I" in "team" but there is a dismembered and mixed-up "me."

    I don't want him here either, but don't forget that the same comments were posted here regarding Sheffield and Johnson.
