I'm not exactly thrilled with harming the up the middle defense by putting Griffey in CF. He needs to be in the corners or DH -- but that doesn't make any sense.

Cue Hawk.

I don't see how Griffey can do any worse that Swish in center.

Another slow, old guy having a down year. Just what the Sox needed.

Except Swish really hasn't done poorly at all.

My brother just texted me and said he heard it on Mike and Mike but I don't see anything on the little scroll...who did we give up? Where would he play? Can he still play CF?

Indeed. At this point, Junior=dreadful in CF while Swish has been surprisingly solid with both his range and jumps.

I feel more like that than excited right now. What need does this fill? I don't see the logic yet.

I'll wait til its official, plus see what it cost before I get excited.

ESPN just reported it, but they cited Ken Rosenthal as their source. And no word on who the Reds would get.

I'm not saying Swish has done poorly, I should have said in no way will Griffey be a downgrade from Swisher in center.

I just woke up to get some water, and I put the Score on as I laid back down and now I can't sleep. I just wanna know who we got rid of, even though Jr is probably one of my favorite players of all time.

I would hypothesize that Griffey still has the superior instincts to play CF, but has lost his speed.

I'll wait until it's official and we find out who we gave up before I make any judgments.
