The failure of Ken Griffey Junior to stay healthy in Cincinnatti has taken a larger toll. The Reds today fired their GM and their manager....along with a couple other coaches. Since the trade to Cincy from Seattle, Griffey has only played in just over 50% of the games. What a disaster this deal has been. For a small payroll team, you can't afford to have your one big name player always on the shelf. Is Griffey a Hall of Famer? At this point I don't think so. He needs to come back and prove, with a couple good seasons to end his career, that he is deserving of that honor.
