Rockies can probably just dump Burnitz at the end of the year, put him in any other ballpark and his numbers arent quite as inflated.

Though I like Griffey alot. I would rather deal Griffey than Casey. unlike Griffey, Casey has produced and hasn't gotten hurt. I'd rather take my chances with a player that likely not to get hurt. The injuries Griffey has sustained will take some stuff off of him the next year or two.
