All of Redleg Nation would like to congratulate Ken Griffey, Jr., on hitting homer #600 earlier tonight in Florida. It couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy, one of the best Reds of all time.

Now, let’s get down to the business of winning ballgames. I know that’s what Junior wants to do, more than anyone.

Blame Chad for creating this mess.

  1. and no roids!
    we still love u even if u look like u could die on the field or pull a hammy when u pick up ur car keys when their dropped

  2. Aaron, Ruth, Mays, and now Griffey. The Natural 600 Club.

  3. Congrats Jr. It’s well deserved.

  4. From a lifelong, die hard Cub fan let me add my heartfelt congratulations to one of the most talented, classiest men to ever play the game. Junior showed everyone that a HOF career can be attained without cheating.

    I know I should hate him because he kills us consistently but all I can say is . . . I wish he was ours.

    Congratulations Junior. Here’s to hoping you hit 700 and beyond — just none against the Cubs OK? 🙂

  5. A Cincinnati boy makes good…and one that seems to have his priorities straight. Congrats Junior!

  6. Congrats Junior!!!

  7. It is sad that the highest praises for Junior and this amazing accomplishment that REALLY only 3 others have fairly matched, have come from a Cubs fan.

    Perhaps Daugherty had a point in his article about lack of Junior love in this, his hometown, his team.

    I really do hope that the Reds can try to make something of this season, most importantly for Griffey. With this potentially being his last year as a Red, it would be really special to see him make at least 1 postseason appearance in a Reds uniform. It is something we have all wanted for him and our fellow fan since the day he came here back in 2000.

    I hopoe he gets hot and the Reds right along with him.

    Congrats on #600 Junior. You are an amazing ballplayer who deserves a championship. Go get it, buddy!

  8. Congratulations to Ken Griffey, Jr. A great achievement in a great career. I was lucky enough to be there last night; quite a thrill for a seventy year Reds fan. Would have been nice to have 45,000 fans give him a standing ovation like in Philly, but the 16,000 in Miami gave him a great ovation. I hope a good crowd turns out tonight at the GABP to cheer Junior on.
