This could be huge if he accepts the trade. I'd think it would set up a possible platoon at 1b with Nick Swisher and Paul Konerko!

He could play center, but as a frequent attendee of Reds games I can tell you he doesn't play the field well at all any more. Ideally he'd be a DH, I think Thome could play a better 1b than Griffey can field. Regardless, he's still got a pretty good bat.

Wow. I don't care if he's injury prone or not as good. He definately helps. And he's one of my all time favorites.

Wow!!!

Pending his approval? Hmm....stay in Cinci or go to Chicago and contend for the AL Central, and possibly more? Does he need help packing?

I know this is a small detail, but I wonder what number he'd wear here?
Harold's 3 is retired, 24 is Joe, Swish has too much emotion invested in his DIRTY 30, and Javy wears 33.

He's only hitting .245 this season, but .271 in July. Likewise he has a .787 OPS for the year but .927 for July. Also, for the past three years (2005-2007) August has been his best month (.987 OPS).

How many more years are on his contract?
