Griffey Jr. comeback or no comeback...what's your feed...

Postby GUEST » Mon Mar 17, 2003 6:43 pm

What do you think, he was once a top choice like vlad, sosa, and mcguire...can he come back...

it's interesting to me because i was offered spivey and griffey for wakefield and burks...wakefield and burks are on my bench and may not cut my starting team unless they perform but i may take a shot on this trade, i cant really lose but then again if he does play like he used to it would be a steal to grab him now in the confusion of others...

whats your take, i know i'm not the only one considering him because he's got to be the most questionable player right now...

He seems poised to do it. As long as he doesn't get injured (that's a big if) then he will be back to a 40+ homer guy and RBI machine. The biggest obstacle for him is not his talent, it is his health.

IMO this is his comeback year. Nothing spectacular, but back to or at least close to where he was in the past.

I would take JR/Spivey over Wakefield/Burks in a second.

Jr. is back and the Reds have an awesome lineup.

Spivey/Griffey for Wakefield/Burks?!?!?!?! Somebody is a confused Red Sox fan! I would hope that your commissioner would veto that trade. :-*

If Griffey Jr. can ever stay healthy, I think his numbers will look a lot more like they did in Seattle than they have the last few years. I wouldn't want Griffey in a role where I needed him to produce, I look at him more as a sleeper ... he needs to prove he can stay healthy.

6 HR, 16 RBI, 1.029 SLG, .371 Avg. in 35 AB's this spring.

Sure looks like a comeback. ... I know, I know it's spring training, but I like him because he should be CHEAP.

The thing you have to remember about Griffey is that he was in decline before his injury. From 98-2000, the last 3 injury free years, he dropped from 56 to 48 to 40 home runs. He dropped from .284 to .285 to .271. He fell from 20 to 24 to 6 sb's. I think that he could be a sleeper, certainly. Take the trade. But don't expect a return to the Griffey of old. The reds have a stacked outfield and could sit him on a moments notice. If he stays relatively healthy, I could see him hitting 30 hrs with a .270 avg. The stolen bases, of course, are long gone. Not bad, but certainly not a return to the Griffey of old. And that's if he stays healthy.
