Griffey Possibly Returning To Seattle

No doubt, Griffey just looks best in a Mariners uniform. Unlike A-Rod, Griffey is a Seattle man and he put that team on the map. I can only hope the Mariners decide to go through with this but I can also understand why they wouldn't. He has to have 5 more guaranteed years and he's 34 with the past 3 years being full of injuries. This is quite a gamble for the Mariners.

There is an article in the AJC saying how the Braves should pony up, get him, move andrew to right, and chipper to 3rd.

I'd like that. Get him back on track, and re-take the all-time HR lead from Bonds in a couple years. Get the record holder back with the Braves!

Sure. Not at his current performance, meaning, last three years.. but i think phisically and skill-wise, he COULD.

If he got healthy, and with a good lineup around him... he could get back on track, people act like he is washed up, and the guy is 34. He's got years to get back on it.

It is baseball, careers can last far longer then other sports. Especially with the DH, which I think his position would be if he went to the AL.

You're talking about a player who's won a ton of Golden Glove awards at his position and you think he'd play DH? I can see how anyone would think he could play a small period of time at the DH but Griffey is a natural center fielder.

Man I'd like to see that happen. I still have my self customized (somewhat crude, but not all that bad looking) Mariners' Griffey sleeveless jersey. I was a big Junior fan... still am, when he's healthy.
