I actually drafted him with my 20th pick. The guy still has the talent, so I think it's worth taking a flier on him. I benched him for his first game, but have started him since and will continue to do so until he gets hurt, which hopefully won't happen.

We should have a contest picking what date Grif will go on the DL.

Maybe its the local media putting a positive spin on it, but he seems ripe for a comeback this year. There hasn't been the doom and gloom feeling of last year at this time. Guess I say all of that to say great pick up off the ww. ;-D

Griffey wants out of Cincy....but he knows that in order to get traded, he has to prove he can still produce. Because of this reason, I see him having a huge year, at least until he gets traded anyways, then hopefully he will be back in the AL, where he can DH everynight. I drafted him in the 13th round of a 12 team draft with this logic, and so far, it's paying off perfectly.

Just my luck!

I'm playing against Griffey this week. He's hot lets see how long he stays healthy. Good pickup
