Ken Griffey, come on down

I read today in the Sun Times and then heard on Mike and Mike that Griffey has told Cincy he "would welcome a trade to the Cubs". Could we trade Jones to Texas for a 12 pack of rosin bags, and then pick up Griffey for right? If so, what do you think we'll have to give Cincy for Griffey and his tiny contract (6.5m this year, next year and a team option in '09)?

Wow, if this is true, I would do whatever we need to to get Griffey. I've always liked him and I think he would look great in Cubbie blue. Good left-handed bat for our lineup and we could stop playing musical chairs with Floyd and Jones in right. Let's see if Jimbo makes this one happen.

Heard this rumor yesterday as well. You got me all excited and I thought it was really going to happen. I'm all for this.

I heard the Cubs would have to give up Marshall to the Reds

Quite a dilemna, I haven't watched any games because I don't have cable, but from the box scores, it seems Marshall has been outstanding sans his last start.

Surely Griffey would help the Cubs alot (you know, actually hitting for power). All I have read about Marshall is that he has a statistically high K:BB so far compared to his minor league numbers, and to expect a fall back to his mean. So this could either be a case of trading while his value his high (also considering the Cubs already have two better lefties in the rotation).

But the Cubs also need all the cheap production they can get the next two years with the impending sale and likely semi-freeze on salaries.

Sorry, but it looks as if Griffey is back in Seattle.

Obviously I can not read and had a major brainfart. I retract that statement since Griffey is not going to be a Mariner again. Doh!

If we have to give up marshall i dont like it. good young pitching is tough to come by while outfield prospects are a dime a dozen.

Giving up Marshall would be a mistake in my book. He has plenty of time to improve but has been impressive so far. Maybe send a package of Jones, Izturis and a minor leaguer.

I would love to have Griffey, however we may be too far back to do the deal now. If we were 5 back i would say pull the trigger. Marshall for Griffey. I know Marshall has looked great with exception to 1 start, but he is not overpowering and I dont think he will ever be a top flight starter. He will be a 3-4 starter. I hope Im wrong especially if we do not do the trade. The problem would then be who is our 5 starter.

I think this would be a horrible trade even if we were tied for 1st place. Can anybody tell me why we'd want to give up a starter who has looked pretty solid this season for a player who gets hurt all the time?
