The Kid in the Bronx?

The short right field porch.

The glaring defensive hole in center.

The sweet swinging lefty, marching to the plate.

Bob Sheppard's voice echoing throughout the stadium, reverberating off the facade.

Ken Griffey, Jr. has just told the Cinci Reds that he is not opposed to a trade as long as it's to a contender. See, the Kid wants a ring to go along with the "$12.5 million a year through 2008, plus $6.5 million each year in deferred money. Combine that with the $6.5 million a year through 2025, with 4 percent interest" and there seems to be one team that fits his bill.

I'm not gonna lie, I've got goose bumps just thinking about another player on the down side of his career with a HUGE contract patrolling the same grass as the Mick and the Clipper.

I think it makes perfect sense for the Yanks.

Heck, I'd even consider a Griffey jersey...
