Great. I can't stand him even more now.

I figured he'd have gone to Seattle.

Would have been a nice way to end his career, but then again, Seattle's pretty terrible this year.

Sweet, I can now see him play live when the Marlins play the Braves...I like Griffey

Braves could easily win the NL East this year.

I love this move! I'm not annointing him a savior or anything but I've always been a fan of Griffey. If their pitchers can stay off the DL, I think they could win it too..

Griffey is awful. He's a 4th OF at best right now. It's sad watching him try to hit now. Watching him with the White Sox last year he just doesn't have anything left.

Strongly disagree.

People have over rated the Braves for the last several years now, and each year they have failed to win the NL East. I believe that the Phillies are still a far superior team than the Braves, and the Mets on paper are better too. Adding Ken Griffey and Javier Vazquez isn't going to suddenly catapult them over two talent laden ball clubs even if they have a core of young players waiting in the wings like they always do.

I forgot about the Phillies..I'll admit, I don't pay a whole lot of attention to the NL East, mostly I just watch the NL West and AL West.

Apparently, he's changed his mind and is now going to Seattle.

Just saw it on ESPN.

That's what I thought he was going to do in the first place

Makes sense for him in Seattle. I'm going to have to head to an A's-Mariners game to watch him play.

So they replaced him with an even bigger hasbeen, Garrett Anderson.

Anderson has been washed up for years.

Not all of us are pumped about him coming back. I think it was more of a PR move to get some butts in the seats. I'm sure it will work, but when a guy who is 39 comes back to play baseball, and the whole city remembers him 10 years ago being a star. It is just going to hurt the fans. The M's are bad enough. The sad thing is, even with his injuries last season, he would have still lead the M's in slugging. God I'm not looking forward to baseball again. Thnks M's....

It's going to be between Oakland and Anaheim for the AL West anyway.

For sure. The west is weak though.
