The Great Griffey Debate

Top's Seattle Mariners Forum has launched Bring Back Griffey and a petition as well. I'm really conflicted on this issue. If I think with my head I say no. Junior is aging, injury-prone, makes too much money and has a seemingly deserved reputation as headcase.

But he was one of my heroes. When The Kid came to Seattle, the Mariners were the most useless team in baseball. The wasn't a single reason for the team to exist, the Expos without snooty French-Canadians. Junior gave the entire Pacific Northwest a reason to pay attention to the team. I'm sure I'm paraphrasing here, but Art Theil put it best, "It took the hard work of many and then incandecence of one to rescue this team."

So, make up your own mind.
