I'm coming home again...

Future first-ballot hall of famer and best non-juiced baseball player Ken Griffey Jr. will be playing his games in Seattle this season. Simply put, F**K Yeah!

The best player of the 90's is back where he belongs. He would be the best player of all-time if only he had taken some 'roids to prevent countless knee, hamstring and foot injuries. If only....

But on a serious note, the man was once bashed as being "soft" for his countless injuries in Cincinnati. That adjective has morphed into "honorable" in the last few years as he has become practically the only big-name player of his era to never be mentioned with the words "HGH" and "performance-enhancing." A-Rod, McGwire, Sosa (sigh), Palmeiro, Tejada, Giambi... the list is countless, but Junior has remained clean. Here's to you, Griffey.

On a sidenote, I hope this event is honored with a re-release of Ken Griffey, Jr. Presents Major League Baseball for all of us that still have a Super Nintendo. Oh, and I'm seriously thinking about coping these.
