Junior is the Hummell Figurine of Major League Baseball players; pretty, expensive, and oh-so-fragile. Posted by razz84 at 4/15/2006 7:54:00 AM
So much potential.....had it not been for all of the injuries I would think Griffey and not Bonds would be considered the greatest home rune hitter of the last 20 years....If Bonds can hit 70 dingers on the juice...."Junior" would of hit 80 if he would of took that route....The Gale Sayers of MLB....

Calling Griffey the Gale Sayers of baseball implies he could have been one of the all-time greats had he not been injured. Griffey ***i***is***/i*** one of the all-time greats (indeed he was named to the All-Century team). He'll challenge for 600 homers, he's a first-ballot hall of famer. His numbers are spectacular, despite the injuries. Had Griffey not been injured he'd have challenged 755 and he would have been in the "all-time greatest" argument. Had Sayers stayed healthy, he would be among the all-time greats, but he probably wouldn't have been considered the all-time greatest (even though he is in the hall of fame).
