the Yankees should sign Clemens if he sticks around. With Nomar it seems as though he likes playing with the cubs.

They was mad to let Clemens go in the first place. I know he retired so to speak but they should have got him back when he decided to play again.

They really had no choice in the matter, though.

And who really wants to see the Yanks be that dominate, anyway? Isn't being the most talented team enough?

Junior To Have Surgery



Reds CF Ken Griffey Jr. will have season-ending surgery to repair a torn right hamstring.
Reds medical director Dr. Timothy Kremchek will perform the surgery on Monday at Beacon Orthopaedic Center in Cincinnati.

Griffey suffered the injury on August 4 at SF while making a sliding catch in right field.

He hasn't started in a game since then, and an MRI today revealed the torn hamstring.

This season for the Reds Griffey hit .253 with 20 HR and 60 RBI in 83 games. He was elected to the All-Star Game starting lineup for the 12th time.

Griffey is expected to be placed on the 60-day disabled list. There is no other roster move at this time

What a shame. He plays his friggin heart out, but gets injured every year, playing in the city that he calls home. Is he a bona-fide Hall of Famer?

The home runs should get him in, but I personally want to see him play at least two injury-free seasons first.

I thought he had some complete seasons while with Seattle.
