Griffey to White Sox

Rumor has it this morning that Ken Griffey Jr has been traded to the White Sox.

Bastards... He is a decent add but getting old..38.

I personally hope he declines. The guy is 39 years old and he probably will want a shit ton of money. They are better off finding young talent than his old ass. I'm sure he has some good games still in him but he hasn't done much lately.

I agree, he's an outfielder and our outfield is pretty solid, I'd hate to see one of our outfielder's leave. What's the other option? DH and replace Jim Thome, I think not.

I hate to say it, but he can DH, Thome plays 1st, and Konerko gets sent back to AAA. I love Konerko, but come on, if you've seen him lately all he does is watch pitches go by, and he either strikes out looking or grounds into a double play. This is the second year Ozzie hasn't sent him to AAA just because he's a big name and doesn't want to kill his confidence, but if he sends him to AAA, he'll rule there, hit some bombs, and get back to what he was 2/3/4/ years ago

Swisher to first JD in right JR in center BA and wise as 4th and 5th outfielders to give those 2 old folk every 4th-5th day off. Depending on who is still around.

I can't imagine giving up a chip like JD mid-pennant race but I've heard talk of him being gone at the end of the year anyway.

And so what if griff is 38-39. I believe he's a free agent at the end of the year? so he's just a 2 month rental anyway.

He adds some nice protection in the line up for JD and Quentin.

yea i think if anything they are gonna limit konerko's playing time and put swisher at first and throw griffey in center. As good as griffey is, considering he's hitting close to the same as konerko. Griffey is at 15 home runs and .245 with 53 rbi's and konerko is .214 and 9 homers.

Plus griffey is an arrogant prick, i remember when i was 10 i went to the back of the stadium to ask him to sign a ball and he told me he wanted $50.

That's what I charge, is that too much?

Good call on Swisher to 1st, don't have to move too many people around and he's AWESOME off the bag.

Go look up swishers batting average.


Another solid left handed threat is uber important. Maybe get Thome some better pitches to hit.

Ozzie is good playing it neutral though, telling media that swisher and konerko and basically identical. Then again it could be his way of justifying keeping him around and hoping he turns around.

Hopefully griffey will be a good addition, at least he has a chance to see a world series finally. I figre we accepted thome after coming from a rival team, we can accept griffey

You don't want to piss off someone that could be huge for you down the stretch and your only 1b.

anyone else hear anything about a swisher back to OAK for street deal?

Yeah, it could be that..or it could be that he watches EVERY FREAKING PITCH GO BY HIM before he swings and misses or gets called looking. Seriously, anybody who's watched him this year knows that he takes more pitches (fastball right down the middle mind you) than anybody in the game. Luckily he's hitting better lately, but it's still annoying to watch.

Nobody thought it was annoying the last 13 years when he had 1370 walks. He's taking the same approach he always has. But he's being pitched differently lately. That is pretty plain to see. I'm very surprised he hasn't made the adjustment, honestly.

OBP is down this year but its still .385. He is still giving you runners on base.

Don't get me wrong I would like to see him hitting more, too, but let's not get carried away here with Jim Thome sucks talk.

gotta get there first.

Griff was in their division and they have a (4 game??) series with them in mid september. He could have had abig part in the last few weeks of the cubs regular (and probably only) season. Now he wont.

yea but i'd ratherhim make a difference in the white sox season than a few games in the cubs.

Now the sox just need to get their pitching under control and they have a damn good chance. Then again playoff's are a whole new season and even the worst team can get on a hot streak at the right time.

I never said Thome sucks, he's one of my favorite players. And you're right, nobody thought it was annoying for the last 13 years because he used to CRUSH the Sox. We probably loved it, but it just gets annoying when a guy with that much experience takes that many pitches, and then he strikes out and walks with his head down to the dugout.

The problem with the sox is we seem to get the best players after their prime, or right before it

im sure thome took alot of pitches to when he played for the indians, we just never watched every game to notice. I think thome is doing good still. You cant expect a home run every time he steps up to the plate.

Same goes for griffey, we cant expect him to turn into the old griffey and knock out 40 homers a year. He is 39 now and past his prime. I just hope he doesnt expect to be a 1 man show because alot of the sox are playing better than him.

oh yea, I agree he should be putting more good swings on the ball for his experience, what he is capable of and his paycheck. I guess I just took what you said the wrong way. But he's still on his way to being on base 200+ times this year. He should be the guy driving in runs but if he's not, at least he can be out there to be scoring them. I guess I'm just trying to make myself feel better.

Professional scouts, Reds fans, even Reds announcers all agree that Griffey can barely cover RF anymore. What makes anyone think he can be a full time CF again? Maybe spot the corner OF when Dye or Quentin need rest.

Swisher is playing out of position when he's in CF but Griffey can't cut in CF anymore.

I'm not against acquiring Griffey but I don't see where he'll play. Unless another move is in the works?

If I were managing I might consider Quentin to CF Griffey to LF even though Quentin is not a natural CF. But he can run a lot better than Griffey can at this point in his career.

thank you. Root for your team to win, not mine to lose. I never understood that.

I want to be the better team, not the team that sucks less.

Think about it, if the cubs and soxs make the world series, it wouldn't matter who won, because the City wins. But in the more likely event that one team makes it and the other doesn't wouldn't you still root for your city? I never understood why people associate love for one team means you have to HATE the other.

I've heard swisher may be moved for a pitching arm. Everyone ignored that comment though. I wouldn't be surprised, Williams is a maverick, at times.

Doesn't look like the ws had to give up much, in that case, its a win for them.

Griffey OKs deal

Quote:
Griffey has approved a trade to the White Sox, according to a source with knowledge of the deal. The trade is now pending the approval of the commissioner, an indication that it involves a cash transaction of more than $1 million.

The approval is expected to be a formality. The Reds will receive pitcher Nick Masset and second baseman Danny Richar, according to CBS Sportsline.

Griffey had the right to block a deal as a player with at least 10 years of major-league service, five with the same club. He did not receive any form of compensation for waiving his no-trade protection.

Da Bears!

I've heard that too, but it still doesn't answer where Griffey will effectively play. Yeah, he'll trot out to CF out of pride but he has been a trainwreck in Cincinnati in RF.

Quentin is serviceable at best in LF. Defense is not his forte. I don't want to see him in CF.

Unless Griffey will rotate in the OF giving everyone a rest then to DH if Thome needs a break?
