I think for once the player's themselves sum things up better than I can:
"Are we facing Sandy Koufax tonight?" asked one. "Or is it Randy Johnson?"
"Are we trying to win?" asked another.
"Are Ken Griffey Jr. and Adam Dunn hurt?" asked a third.
"I came to the park early, all happy and smiling after a day off, ready to take some extra hitting," Griffey said. "Dunn said, 'Why are you so happy? You're not in the lineup and neither am I.' "
Griffey visited Miley's office to lobby for his spot, but Miley wouldn't budge. Dunn didn't try.
"I had a day off Thursday and don't need (another one), but I can't say anything because I suck," he said.
We've lost Adam Dunn. Completely and utterly, one of the 10 best players in the game today, and there's no chance he's going to want to be a Red any longer than he has to be. What a waste.
