Griffey trade talk
I just talked to Wayne Krivsky. I asked him about what Ken Griffey Jr. said to Peter Gammons about believing he'll be traded before the deadline.
Krivsky would sooner undergo a root canal than talk about trades.
"I'm not going to talk about lists," Krivsky said. "I don't have a list. Some guys are harder to trade for contractual reasons. But I'm not going to get into untouchables."
Griffey is a 10-and-5 guy so he can rejection any trade. I've got a call into his agent to see if the Reds have talked about which teams Griffey would be willing to go to.
I think the perception is out there that the Reds are about to begin a fire sale.
"I don't worry about perceptions," Krivsky said. "I worry about reality. We're trying to make quality baseball decisions whether they help us win games now or later."
