ST is more than 2 months away. More than enough time for his hand to heal.

If by "heal" you mean "fall and break his other hand," I agree.

Lmao. You know he'll strain something rehabbing.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

He should stop worrying about playing baseball and just put himself in a plastic bubble at this point. He's a danger to himself and all around him with his accidents. Samuel Jackson's character in 'Unbreakable' was tougher than Griffey ever since he's moved back home. Imagine if he boarded a plane you were on? How fast would get off that thing??

Not many clubs want guys who break their hands in the off-season and get paid through the nose to do so.

Grif is only making $9 million according to CBS Sportsline, I bet someone would take a chance on him as DH
