Anyone else notice that Ken Griffey Jr. is picking this team up and carrying it on his back right now? It just seems like he is doing everything he can to get the Reds to the promised land this season. His quiet on field leadership is a beautiful thing to watch. I wish he was a little more demonstrative in the media and set the tone for the last half of the season. I wonder if he can pitch an inning each night also?
I know he is not one to talk about individual accomplishments but at this rate he will not easily pass Reggie on the all time HR list but also Palmeiro (569) and Killebrew (573). With 14 more RBI he will reach 1600 for his career putting him into the top 25 all time. That, boys and girls, is legendary stuff and we have the privilege of getting to watch it first hand!! Thanks Jr. and Go Reds!
