Exactly what this team needs
Five teams have shown interest in future Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr., his longtime agent Brian Goldberg said.
…another gimpy, injury-hiding player
Griffey’s performance was compromised last season due to a knee injury he hid for most of the year. Griffey had his left knee drained three times, according to Goldberg, and it was finally repaired surgically three days after the season. He hit only three home runs in 41 games after going to the White Sox, but his power may have been affected by his knee issue.
Griffey suffered the injury early in the season with the Reds when he tripped over a misplaced foot locker in the Reds’ clubhouse.
I cannot fathom why Goldberg thinks that revealing that Griffey destroyed his knee tripping on something — which he then apparently concealed for the rest of the season, badly hurting his team — helps demand. Though maybe it’s a bid to take over the mantle of leadership shown by our own gimpy, injury-hiding left-fielder and clubhouse leader Ibanez.
