  • Griffey to DC?

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2006/0...o_for_gri.html

    It's always fun to find trade rumors in Spanish newspapers. El Nuevo Dia's latest discusses an Alfonso Soriano for Ken Griffey Jr. trade that is cooking up. The following is a rough translation (hat tip to Mariloren on the translation!):

    The Reds and Nationals have been negotiating the Soriano for Griffey trade over the last few days. Soriano refused comment when approached by the newspaper. Details are the proposed transaction are still unknown. If traded to the Nationals, Griffey would be reunited with former Reds GM Jim Bowden.

    Pros: We get rid of Soriano for a year and add Griffey for three years.
    Cons: We get rid of Soriano for a year and add Griffey for three years.
    The Q: Can the Cubs hold a 6-5 lead with 2 outs and nobody on in the 9th?

    The A: No

    ***********My Rant on Bud Selig***********
    Selig is like a stray pigeon. Pigeons are too self-absorbed to care about anyone else. They poo on people they don't like; they poo on people they don't even know. The only real difference between Selig and a pigeon is that Selig intends to bury our heritage, our traditions, and our culture,

      This makes a lot more sense for the Reds than it does for the Nats. As much as I'd like to ditch Soriano, I don't think Jr. will manage to last another three years. He's 36, and averaged 89 games the past five years. I know he played well when he played last year (128 games), but I can't get past all of those injuries at that age. The vast RFK outfield would be tough on the hamstring.

        In that case:

              I would do that trade because any trade involving Soriano would have to include us getting back a decent OF bat.

                148 hits, 91 RBIs, 35 HRs, .301 batting avg., .369 OBP for Griffey vs. 171 hits, 104 RBIs, .268 avg., .309 OBP for Soriano. Basically even offensively overall IMO.

                I'd take the guy with ten consecutive Gold Gloves in the outfield over a guy moving from 2nd base even if his leg may cause him some trouble.
