I wouldn't keep him in a Reds only league.

Keep in mind that last year everyone says he was fairly healthy, but he played in only 128 games. BUT, the numbers he put up in that time were quite good. If you gamble on him as a3rd OF, I think you would be wise to have a pretty good 4th OF ... just in case Or else you could be sorry :-/

I would absolutely keep Griffey at $16 in NL-only. Even a semi-healthy Griffey should earn that easily. I think you'd be crazy not to keep him at that price, IMO. He earned $32 last year. Hell, Rich Aurilia earned $16 last year, according to Rototimes. It's a no-brainer.

I know that for this year in fantasy baseball he is a 10th round + draft choice but this guy is one of the top 50 ALL TIME players and he doesn't get credit for it. Over his first 10 years he was unbelievable. Don't forget the greatness he has

...yeah, i just can't shake the injury thang..one year on auction day, kgriffey sold for $30 and driving home from the draft it was announced griffey had torn his hamstring and was out for 4 months (that team was just about done 3 hours after they bought him)..$16 seems like a reasonable risk

I'm not sure how he shakes out for an auction league dollar wise but I think you can do ALOT worse for a 3rd OF type. That lineup & ballpark only help him.
