Why doesn't anybody say "ChiSox" anymore? I used to see that all the time. Anyway:
The Reds have traded Ken Griffey to the White Sox. No word on what is coming back [cough!] PTBNL [cough!]. As a 10-5 guy, the deal awaits Griffey's approval.
So Ozzie, where you gonna play him? Thome is at DH, and Quentin and Dye have the corners. If you say "center," I am going to have to stop the conversation immediately, because I will have two very important things to do: (a) order the Extra Innings package so I can see every White Sox game going forward because high comedy like Griffey in center doesn't come along every day; and (b) buy some stock in the company that makes those big 'ol bandages guys wrap around their injured hamstrings.
UPDATE: Griffey has approved the deal. Who's coming back to Cincinnati is still up in the air. A guy in my office told me that Colin Cowherd said on the radio that the Sox were sending back Nick Swisher. Which would be absolutely stupid of course, but then again consider the source. I think Cowherd was getting it mixed up with an earlier report that reliever Nick Massett was to be included.
