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

My best guess is similar to his first year with the Reds - 2000:

.279, 40 HR, 118 RBI, 100 R, 4 SB

I'm hoping he's even better, but considering his recent history, I can't really expect any more.

thanks for the feedback, i did pull the trigger because as i said i wont really use wakefield or burks in my starting line-up but an improved griffey at his value right now could prove to be beneficial...i liked him in the past and would like him to be back in the ranks of a valueable player again....

you have to agree, his swing 'was' one of the best...

No player is climbing ESPN's live draft board than Griffey Jr.

This is another trade I'd do, then trade him away for much more at some point later in the season.

I wouldn't want to depend on Wakefield. When his knuckler isn't on, he gets crushed. He'll also give you more 5 inning starts than most SP's, and is probably the first option to back to the bullpen where he is basically useless.

If you go by SP appearances, no way I'd want Wakefield on my team. If it's an inning limit, I guess it's not so bad.

With Griffey, I wouldn't have any loyalty. No matter how good he gets, remember how cheap you got him and remember he's an injury risk.

If he has two or three great months, enjoy the benefit of it. Most people will be right back on his bandwagon. At that time, trade him. Remember, he's just a bonus to you if he does well, so you should get rid of him if the getting gets real good. Always try to trade players at their peak value whenever you can.

Actually, I think it's his attitude.....but I got him on Yahoo autodraft and I have been reluctant to give him up after much interest in him for trades. I think he's gonna have a solid year.
Well Look who has come to the cafe, It's Mr. Met!

Metsfan1969, he may have a great year, but if you're getting really solid offers for him, you should consider it. I'd say if someone is offering you Giles for him, you pull the trigger right away, and you don't even get upset if he has a better season because you eliminated a big risk on your team.

To each their own, though.
