BREAKING: Griffey to the Sox
Sorry to crap on your post, Keggers, but, well, holy shit.
The Sox are getting Ken Griffey Jr.
Currently, it is unknown what the Sox are giving UP for Junior (my guess? Nick Massett and a AA prospect I've never heard of), but I wish we had done this LAST year when it made more sense. Griffey can't play CF any better than Swisher can at this rate, and the corners are locked up with Quentin and Dye.
If there's another trade in the works to free up a spot, I would be surprised. It's unlike Kenny to alter the team much. Likewise, I know how much of a hard-on Kenny has had for Griffey over the years, so I imagine he's not going anywhere.
(Oh yeah - and maybe Favre will DH)
