On Day 3, Griffey homers

For the record, Junior Griffey got the same kind of reception in his first at-bat Sunday as he did Friday and Satruday -- a prolonged standing O.

And he homered to give the Reds a 1-0 lead.

The place went nuts -- after a brief delay. No one, including Griffey, was sure if left fielder Willie Bloomquist caught the ball or not. Griffey stopped after rounding first. When it finally became apparaent that Bloomquist didn't have the ball, he continued his trot.

It was No. 20 for Griffey.

I thought Nuxhall was going to call games in Seattle to add to his list of stadiums visited.

I think that was the original plan, but the plan changed when Nuxie was still getting treatment. It was not a last-minute cancelation or anything like that.

Any ideas how much longer Reds fans have to put up with Jerry Narron and his lack of ability? It is rediculous that nothing has been done about his inability to win games. Just curious if there are any rumblings of making some changes that don't involve trading away some of our better players (Griffey, Freel, Hamilton, Hopper). I'm all about sending Dunn packing, he's a liability in the outfield and everyone knows what happens most of time while hes's at the plate.
