In 1993, he hit .297, 29 homers, 101 RBI.
In 1995, he hit .300, 39 homers, 126 RBI, and 11 SB
In 1996, he hit .326, 44 homers, 143 RBI.
In 1998, he hit .337, 40 homers, 115 RBI.
In 1999, he hit .281, 33 homers, 108 RBI.


I also reccomend Fred Mcgriff, Ricky Henderson, Dean Palmer and Barry Larkin.

These guys are great.


Correction, were great. You can't base your projections on 5 year old stats.


I bet those 11 SB's are why he won the MVP award. And if memory serves me correctly, Barry Larkin won the NL MVP in 1995. I remember because I pulled 2 good cards out of packs in 1995: Both were gold fascimile autographs in Collector's Choice, and they were of each league's MVP: Big Mo the Water Buffalo and Barry Larkin. I thought I was the luckiest pack opener in the world :-D

That is until my dad got a LeBron James Upper Deck Finite Masterpiece 1/1 in a pack. But I still have my Larkin Gold Auto ;-D

hmm...not if I was drafting late in the first, I would want a better 2nd rounder.

but if I was picking early in the first so that I had like the 5th and 275th, then maybe. My plan would be to reunite him with Jay Buhner in my OF.

lol, this is great. If you like Griffey so much, you oughta just do it and draft him in the first. "Let's see, Soriano or Griffey. Arod or Griffey. Naw, Arod has no more upside. I'm thinkin Griffey."

Its sad how the mighty have fallen, and Griff isnt even a sleeper on most lists anymore. I still say he has the ability and potential to go 30-100 at GAB. But, of course the nagging injuries dont seem to be letting up anytime soon. Oh well, somebody will be getting a steal when he does shake the injury bug, if it ever happens.

i completely agree... i remember when i first started playing (1998?) griffey was at the top of his game and at the top of the wish list of every fantasy owner. now, ppl are afraid to touch him with a 10 foot stick. it's a real shame... u gotta feel bad for junior... giving up all the money he could've made to come home, then spending more time in the hospital than on the field. IMO, the potential for 30 100 is still there... even though i dont have him on my team, it'd be nice for junior to regain fantasy glory and give a big pay off to the owners who took a risk with him this year.
