Just Let Him Be, It's Griffey

Why does the press continue writing more and more about Ken Griffey Jr potentially sleeping in the clubhouse during Saturday's game. If I was Griffey and a reporter came up to ask if I was available to pinch-hit that day, I probably would've said something along the lines of...

"Look, I'm everything that's ever been good about the Seattle Mariners organization. I've hit 630+ career home runs through my 21-year career. I'm one of the best players in the history of the game. If I want to sleep...I can if you could do me a favor and shove it I'd greatly appreciate it."

But...I guess that's one of the many reasons why It's okay for me to have never found the spotlight. Griffey decided on a more respectable approach, simply stating "I'm always available." Manager Don Wakamatsu handled the situation to perfection, making it 'clear' to everyone that he was on the bench the entire time. "He wasn't asleep," claimed Wakamatsu. "He was available to pinch hit and I chose not to use him as the manager."

There have been other complaints in regards to Griffey's performance with his .200 batting average and .225 slugging percentage so far this season. As far as I'm concerned, Griffey should be able to sign and sit on the bench with the Mariners in uniform until the day he dies for all of his contributions. Any more questions or concerns? Let the man be.
