Another expensive, aging, plodder - (home run or nothing) - exact opposite of what Sox need (IMO) -maybe there's another move along with it such as Griffey going elsewhere or PK or.... no word of Sox names - reminds me of the Alomar / Everett moves. Maybe lightening in a bottle?
Depending on who the Sox give up, I'm not so sure I like this...Its just that Ken Griffey is soooo old. He'd more or less be a platoon player and I'm not so sure I want him in CF...he's still a solid left handed bat, but...I don't get it.
