Okay, so I'm on a roll with all this re-alignment talk that I'm taking it to baseball. Never really agreed with how Selig and the owners drew to divisions, so I will give my ideal baseball divisions.

NL East

New York Mets

NL Central

Chicago Cubs
St. Louis

NL West


AL East

New York Yankees

AL Central

Kansas City
Chicago White Sox

AL West

California (Angels really need to go back to this name)

*Note* I left Florida and Tampa Bay out because they shouldn't be teams because of such low attendance. lol

Btw, We traded Griffey to the Chicago White Sox today. Hopefully my Reds will be a better team now!!!

How would you propose the baseball re-alignment?

You waited too late. Can you re-post this tomorrow? It's my bedtime and I really need the sleep.

You can think about it and post tomorrow on it, how's that?

Btw, it's too early for bed...

Oh, and I would get rid of interleague play. It cheapens the World Series.

I forgot to write in my blog that I would move Milwaukee back to the American League where they belong!

You can take away our Cleveland-Cinci games when you pry them from our cold, dead fingers.

Well, we did win the Ohio Cup this summer. And we did take 5 of 6 from Cleveland! God, I hate Cleveland!!! REDS RULE!!!

Nah...Basically, we got a bucket of balls and a couple of rosin bags for him, and there's
TEN YEARS' deferred salary to pay him!! I'm afraid the Reds won't be able to
afford more than second class talent for a long, LONG time...

Chicago pretty much helped us out regardless of what we got for him. He was going to walk after this year anyway and had $16.5 million waiting for him next year if we picked up the option for him. Instead we had a $4 million buyout for next year on him. Chicago will be paying half of his salary this year and spliting the buyout with us with $2 million each. Griffey's time came, and even though I love to see him go, I wish the guy luck. He wasn't the kind of player we all expected. He honestly loafed too much and had a huge ego. And that slitting across the throat he did to Brantley was in poor taste. He was too immature as a player and in the locker room.

Can't argue too strenuously against any of your points....I was more disappointed with
all the recurring injuries; I'm surprised the guy can still walk! He WAS an EXTREMELY
tempremental player, though, not much of a leader, and a bit of a showboat after each
home run, too!

It drives me nuts when any player just stands there and admires what may appear to be a homerun, especially when it's off the wall! lol

I don't watch baseball....too boring......

Ken Griffey Jr. issued the following statement on Saturday:

I would like to thank the Cincinnati Reds organization for allowing me to fulfill a lifelong dream of playing for my hometown team. I will always value the lasting relationships I have the the Lindner, Castellini and Williams families.

While my nine seasons there were filled with personal highlights-like hitting by 400th, 500 and 600th home runs in a Reds uniform-and the negatives of having to fight through too many injuries, my biggest regret is that we were not ablt to win a world championship while I was there.

I also would like to thank my many teammates, managers, coaches and Reds employees for their help and support and to acknowledge the many friendly relationships i had with most of the members of the local media. I will miss the banter.

Last, but certainly not least, I would like to thank Reds fans for their support. I really to understand the overwhelming majority of fans wanted so badly for me to succeed.

Additionally, I would like to sincerely apologize to those fans offended by my wrongful actions last Saturday night, It was an overreaction on my part to what I felt was a series of public inaccurate and unfair remarks about me.

I wish nothing but success for the Reds both on the off the field.


Ken Griffey, Jr.

Yeah, I read that in the Cincinnati Enquirer. I thought that Griffey showed some class by writing it.
