Goatriders of the Apocalypse

The Official Goatriders Policy On Ken Griffey Jr.

I would appologize for hijacking this blog and the voices of the other Riders for this purpose, except for the fact that this is quite possibly the most important issue facing our great nation, and swift and resolute action is required here. Too many lives have been lost already to allow this to continue any further.

And by "this" I of course mean Ken Griffey Junior's continued employment as a baseball player.

Just so's there's no confusion on the issue, I am going to present you with a list of people who would be better right fielders (taking into account hitting, defense and baserunning) than Ken Griffey, Jr. for the CubsĀ in 2009:

  • Kosuke Fukudome
  • Mark DeRosa
  • Micah Hoffpauir
  • Jim Edmonds
  • Ryan Theriot
  • Sam Fuld
  • Josh Kroeger
  • Manny Ramirez
  • Adam Dunn
  • Juan Pierre
  • Gary Matthews, Jr.
  • Gabe Kapler
  • Brad Wilkerson
  • Emil Brown
  • Milton Bradley
  • Willie Bloomquist
  • Jerry Hairston, Jr.
  • Mark Kotsay
  • Corey Patterson
