Heroes of the Zeros: Center Field

In February of 2000 the Reds traded for Ken Griffey Jr. and locked up their center fielder for the next decade to an 8-year deal.  Or so they thought.  Injuries and declining play meant that Griffey only started 36% of the games in CF for the decade.  Does he still deserve to be the starting CF on the All Decade Team?  That's for you to decide!  Ballot after the jump.

Other ballots: Starting Rotation | Bullpen | Catcher | First base | Second base | Third base | Shortstop | Left Field
