Seattle: Junior's kind of town
They're sort of making a big deal out of Ken Griffey Jr.'s return to Seattle.
The centerpiece story in the Post-Intelligencer is Griffey's old buddy and outfield mate Jay Buhner talking about the glory days.
Inside the section, there's a column by Jim Moore where he he writes: "I presumed Griffey would receive a five-minute standing ovation and unified tip of the cap from everyone in attendance." There's a chart of longest and most memorable homers for the Mariners.
There's the promise for more tomorrow, including a Griffey poster.
Haven't seen the Seattle Times yet, but I'm sure they're doing similar things.
Griffey is tired of talking about it. But my guess is, after the press conference tomorrow, he'll loosen up and enjoy it. And I predict at least one home run.
