2008 Reds / Reds - General

Congratulations, Ken Griffey, Jr.

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.

  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. 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? πŸ™‚

  3. 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!

  4. 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.
