It appears so. Or that’s what the writers of ‘The Seattle Times’ believe.
I enjoy stories like this. Griffey has stated publicly that if he had a choice as to what cap is on his plaque at Cooperstown it would be the Mariner’s. It’s nice to hear that he has fond memories of his 10 seasons with the team.
Even if the contract is just for 1 year, as reported, it will certainly boost interest in Mariners baseball again and will only increase their ticket and merchandise sales for the 2009 season. Not a bad move by Griffey or the Mariners…
Ah, the good old days….
