Ken Griffey ReturnsKen Griffey, Jr. returns to Seattle tonight when the Cincinnati Reds come to town.
There is some debate about whether the fans will boo him or not. Personally, although I think Alex Rodriguez is a beneath contempt and will boo him at Safeco until he retires (and possibly after that, a la "Potvin Sucks" at New York Rangers games), I have no such feelings towards Ken Griffey, Randy Johnson, or any of the other stars who deserted Seattle in the 1990s. So when Griffey's name is announced I plan to cheer loudly (we'll be at one of the games this weekend) and a tear may come to my eye. Griffey, in particular, really did save baseball in Seattle, but more generally I choose to remember the good times from a player's stay here, and not worry about how it ended.
Except for A-Rod. He's a %$#^&@*.
