Missing Ken Griffey Jr.

By bullpenbrian at 06.03.2010 Leave a comment.

We talk about it all the time–great players hanging on too long. Ken Griffey Jr. is no exception.

He should’ve retired last year when his teammates carried him off the field. But at last, Griffey is leaving the game of baseball, and on his own terms, nonetheless.

It’s just the kind of exit you expect from Junior, which is why he’s one my all time favorites.

No silly press conference, no poor-pitiful-me attitude and zero fanfare. Just a simple ‘goodbye.’

We may have forgotten about Griffey the past five years, but as time drags on, bringing the Steroids Era into better focus, one of the game’s greatest players will be sorely missed.
