Spring Training Shorts

Return of the Kid

It's like a dream come true. What Niner fans would have felt had Joe Montana suited up for the burgundy and gold one more time, going out at Candlestick Park where he belonged. Ken Griffey Jr. is fulfilling the dreams of baseball in the Northwest by returning to the team he grew up with. He might not be the same 19 year old kid they brought up in 1989, but a rejuvenated Jr. means a loose, charismatic star is back in Seattle. It will be poetry in motion to once again see that sweet lefty swing in a Mariner’s jersey. Stay healthy Griff, you and the M’s both deserve this.

Somebody Sign Him

Manny Ramirez is still a free agent. I know times are tough and money is tight, but his career .314 batting average and 133 RBI per season speaks for itself. This 500 home run club member not only delivers fans to the ball park, he delivers in the clutch and will deposit balls into the bleachers. Some GM better step up to the plate and deliver the goods. Note to hopeful contenders: spend the money and give your club an instant chance at a title.
