Item: Griffey rumors dominate first day: Star could rejoin M’s next week/Seattle PI
More Info: On the Mariners’ first day of spring training, most of the discussion swirled around someone who wasn’t at spring training and isn’t a Mariner. That would be Ken Griffey Jr., who wasn’t on hand Friday as pitchers and catchers reported to the Peoria Sports Complex for their annual physical exams. By this time next week Griffey is expected to be a Mariner, but for the moment, he’s just another unemployed baseball player trying to find a job. There are other jobs out there that he could get — teams have told him he might be a fallback for them — but returning to the Mariners is what Griffey wants/Seattle PI. More here.
Question: Would you follow the Mariners more closely this year if Ken Griffey Jr. returned to the ballclub?
