I don't think it's the managers job to talk a player in to switching roles for the team. And this is coming from a Cubs hater. That would be like telling Griffey that he HAS to play RF rather than CF to prevent further injuries. When a player has said repeatedly that he doesn't want to change roles/positions, he shouldn't have to. If he volunteers to do so, then by all means, make the switch,
Wow. Am I reading this right? I think if a manager thinks Griffey should play right--or whatever might help the team--he should just do it. The players are employees, making boatloads of cash. Wow.
I'm back. Sorta.
Do not boo Johnny.
