Griffey Falls Asleep

May 10, 2010, 1:45 PM | Updated: Apr 4, 2011, 7:51 pm

If you missed it, we are talking about Larry Larue’s article on Ken Griffey Jr falling asleep in the clubhouse during a game.

“He was asleep in the clubhouse,” one player said. “He’d gone back about the fifth inning to get a jacket and didn’t come back. I went back in about the seventh inning – and he was in his chair, sound asleep.”

Larue goes on to say that the Mariners and Griffey have a few options coming up.

Sooner or later, Wakamatsu is going to ask general manager Jack Zduriencik for a player who can help him win more than Griffey can. And Zduriencik is going to talk to president Chuck Armstrong.

And all of them are going to ask Junior to retire gracefully. If he doesn’t, the end of Griffey’s career will come, anyway – by way of a release from the Seattle Mariners.
