The media keeps talking about it, so I’ll link this AP article. I guess I understand why it’s a story, but come on, Junior hasn’t even taken a fly ball in right field during a game.

And it’s such a logical move, I can’t imagine there is any controversy over this … well, other than the possibility that Griffey’s ego is bruised. Otherwise, can we please get back to fawning articles about Josh Hamilton?
