If BA is a part of this deal, I'm going to stay away from WSI for awhile.

My only problem with this is that Rosenthal is the source. Not the most reliable guy on the block......

Rotoworld says that Griffey has an $16.5 million club option w/$4 million buyout for 2009.

Well... He's got a hugely overpriced option for next season (16.5MM), add that to the one we will in all likelihood have to shell out for Thome, and we got two pretty old and pretty damn expensive players on the roster.

I just hope we didn't give up much for him when he's having the worst year of his career and is owed a boat load of money next year.

As a notorious FOBA, I don't care as long as Griffey helps the Sox win the series. If not, I hope they address CF this offseason (and not with a career corner outfielder).

Well that came out of nowhere. I wonder who went back.

Quentin, Swisher, Dye, Griffey. That's a nice outfield platoon, plus it gives Ozzie more lineup flexibility to play the pitching matchups or go with the hot bat.

I won't shed a tear if BA is involved in this.

Tim Derkes from MLBTR (I know, not everyone's favorite site) brought up an interesting idea. We might be trying Griffey at first.

He doesn't even get Griffey's age right. Junior is 38, not 36.

I'm not sure how this trade makes any sense unless we're getting rid of Dye, Quentin, Thome or Konerko. I don't see any of these guys going anywhere. Konerko is a 5/10 guy...and why would the Reds want him anyway.

He's only appeared twice in his career at first base, both times being a long time ago.
