MARINERS: TNT trying to push Griffey off the team

It was with dismay that I have read the disingenuous efforts by three sports writers for The News Tribune to have Ken Griffey Jr. pushed off of the Mariner team.

It is unprofessional for these writers to base their stories on the testimony of “anonymous Mariners players.” These players have displayed their lack of committment to their team. The sports writers are using these anonymous players to vindicate their attacks on Ken.

True to form, Griffey is rising above the tactless attacks rather than sinking to the level of the writers.
