... I remember buying an ESPN Baseball preview mag in '96 where they said we would be calling this particular time period "The Griffey Era" in Baseball. Now, I know full well the hyperbolic tendencies of ESPN, but at the time, I didn't know of anyone who disagreed with that proclamation. It's been an unbelievable turn of events for Ken since he left Seattle.

I know Boston is in LOVE with mendoza and will do everything they can to get him. My Mets are in contact with Stanton as well...and seeing how he lives in Jersey and doesn't want to leave the area it looks like we are the frontrunners.
