Griffey to Chicago..??

Postby rockchalk » Sat Feb 07, 2004 12:40 am

The Score 670 in Chicago is reporting a Jr. and Reitsma for Konerko and Koch trade pending phycials for all.

Anyone here live in Chicago and hear the same thing? A buddy called me about an hour ago with the report.

hahaha.. I doubt that trade would happen. Chicago doesn't want to take on his payroll.

Koch to Cincy. There closer situation would be a mess.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

Griffey wouldn't pass the physical.

But if i were them i wouldnt trade for Griffey, he is no longer a great player, he is always injured anymore

I don't know the validity of it as I know the score regularly reports erroroneous info.

Why not Griffey? Perhaps DH'ing is something he should do until he proves he can stay healthy for half a season.

Reitsma is better than Koch as well.

I doubt that trade would happen....but you never know. I would like to see Griffey stay healthy for one season and see what kind of numbers he could put up in the all american ballpark

Griffey To Chicago

If Griffey stays healthy it could be a helluva pickup for the Sox. He turned 34 in November, but with all the missed time while on the DL, he could post half-a-dozen more excellent years. Plus, as someone already mentioned, the DH could extend his career even further.

Shades of Marcus Allen.

I've never had Griffey on a fantasy team but he's always picked in leagues I'm in. There's always that thought on draft day that maybe this is the year Griffey doesn't get hurt and bops 45-50 homers again.
