Tonight marks Ken Griffey, Jr.’s return to Seattle. Aaron Harang will be facing some Mariner pitcher whose name I can’t pronounce.

It’s all about Junior tonight, though. Discuss it here.

  4. Wow, the Griffey tribute was really touching. Amazing.

  5. Griffey won’t go down as one of the greatest speakers of all time. Tough situation for anyone though.

  6. OK. let’s see Griffey hit 4 HR’s tonight!

    šŸ˜€

  7. Wow…as a Cincinnatian, I kinda feel like the second wife at the family reunion…

  8. 4-0 nice start boys

  9. Good start to this game!

  10. 1 and 2nd in the 2nd no out , DO NOT LET UP!

  11. 1 and 2nd in the 2nd no out , DO NOT LET UP!

  12. Let’s see some stick, Dunner!

  13. Aaron can just relax and pitch tonight, 2 easy innings so far

  14. Ross with the blast! He sure has got his swing straighten out.

  15. and now Phillips!

    Feel free to follow suit, Griffey!

  16. Guess everyone has left since this one is such a laugher. Nice to see the Reds putting a hurting on someone else. I’d just like to see Griffey get in on the HR action.

  17. Another error for our great defensive shortstop, this one on a grounder right at him. My son is a little league shortstop, and he could have made that play.

    I don’t know what the deal is, but Gonzalez has sucked on defense this year.

  18. It seems to me that Gonzo doesn’t stay focused on those routine balls.

  19. the Reds have 6 players with 10 or more HR

  20. Ross is in the zone!!!

  21. Ross is bustin out!!! 5 RBI’s ,15-1

  22. Where has this been all season!?

  23. The Mariners aren’t going to make a change, going to serve up the pitcher to eat some innings and just get beat on

  24. Phillips goes yard

  25. Phillips goes yard

  26. BP in a zone!!!

  27. Can we save some of these for Saturday and Sunday? šŸ˜Æ

  28. I think we should hire all Mariner pitchers to be BP pitchers for the Reds!

  29. I hope Aaron pitches a completre game, cause I don’t want to see our Pen bust a 15 run lead

  30. With the 3rd pitchers for the M’s, the first two pitchers have thrown 156 pitches

  31. Jr is pressing another K

  32. Gosiling comes on in the 9th. Starts with 5 straight balls. I think its out of reach, but you never know.

  33. Bases now loaded. But ends on a double play.

    Reds take the first of the JR series. Here’s hoping they saved some runs for Loshe tomorrow. Heading up from Portland to catch the game. Too bad i can’t hear Marty and the gang in the stands.

  34. I was glad that Junior mentioned that he has missed Seattle and that he still checks the boxscore to see how the M’s did. I was not aware just how much Junior means to Seattle and how he, in reality, saved the franchise and was instrumental in the building of Safeco. I’ve been there twice and it rates with the best of the new parks. Having a beer and a hot dog at the upper deck concession stands and seeing Mt. Rainier in the distance is pretty tough to beat.
