Anybody know the deal with this guy? Was he hurt last year? According to his stats he barely played. But he's listed as an FA, maybe might be an interested pickup if he's healthy, because he's probably very cheap.

He tore some ligaments in his thumb. He can throw some leather at second, but offensively...YUCK! Hes worse than Willie Harris. No, seriously. :smile:

To think HE was the one who held up the Griffey Junior trade talks...

And what is with calling Ken Griffey Jr "Junior Griffey"? They even do it at ESPN now in the middle of the columns.

I always remember it just being Junior. When did they add the Griffey to it?
