Ken Griffey jr. is he

Postby swingaway » Mon Dec 08, 2003 2:49 am

washed up or will he pull a frank thomas on us and come back to respectable form.Imo if doesnt go back to respectable form this year i think he washed up. Griffey could also be a guy to look at for this as a comback player imo. I mean what else could go wrong for him.

Maybe not Thomas #'s from this year, but if (big if) he can get 400 ABs he can easily hit 25-30 Hrs with like 80 Rbi

Not in cincy, but if he lands in an AL team, with some warm winters, cushy grass, and a friendly supporting cast, then you could expect something.

I think it will happen.

Hard to ignore his potential.

Hard to reach his potential from the DL.

Who knows.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

He's a huge risk, who comes with a huge reward. Most likely he'll spend at least half the season on the DL with some problem, who knows. If by chance he plays in 140-150 games, he could put up amazing numbers. With guys like Kearns and Dunn in that lineup already, great things could come form Cincinnati. He might even make Adam Dunn a better player 8-o oops did I just say that!?!?
