White Sox - Acquired Griffey
Chicago White Sox - Apparently acquired RF Ken Griffey Jr. from the Chicago White Sox for P Nick Masset and 2B Danny Richar.
And Griffey leaves Cincinnati, leaving Jeff Brantley’s throat intact, to the chragin of many. There’s no way to chalk up Griffey’s time in Cincinnati as a success, given that he only played 2 full seasons in nearly 9 (with a 3rd season that wasn’t full, but was of superstar quality). Griff’s essentially a 4th outfielder on the White Sox and some of the speculation about him playing some center in Chicago is quite frightening, with Griffey having not played centerfield at all since 2006 and not well since 2001. I’d put Dye in center before Griffey at this point and I wouldn’t put Dye in center. It’d be nice to get The Nerk out of the lineup, but it’s going to be tough.
The Reds get a surprisingly decent haul for the last few months of Griffey’s contract. Neither Masset or Richar have any star potential, but they’re a good step above the random A-baller you frequently see in these types of trades. God knows the Reds can always use an extra arm and Richar, a dark horse candidate for a job last winter, provides additional infield depth, which the Reds don’t have, as witnessed by Paul Janish being pushed for a while into a role he was completely not ready for.
