As per Walkoff Walk commenter Donkey Time, smarmy baseball apparition Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports is reporting that the Chicago White Sox have reached a deal to acquire Ken Griffey Jr. from the Cincinnati Reds. The teams are waiting on Griffey to decide if he really wants to play for the emotionally abusive Ozzie Guillen. MORE DETAILS AS THEY COME IN.
UPDATE ONE: CTC interviewed Ken Griffey's mom back in June. This has nothing to do with anything, we just feel it didn't get enough publicity at the time.
UPDATE TWO: Wait, don't the White Sox already have three capable outfielders, one capable first baseman, and a capable DH? What will Griffey do on this team? The laundry?
UPDATE THREE: And yet Griff's teammate Adam Dunn sits by the phone, biding his time with the jumble. He leads the majors in tater tots, people!
UPDATE FOUR: White Sox to send Nick Masset and Danny Richar. They may also be sending Nick Swisher to Oakland for Huston Street. Whoops! Congratulations to your 2008 AL Central winners, the Minnesoter Twins!
UPDATE FIVE: Griffey approved the deal. Now we're just waiting for the commish to approve the trade. Also, Marty Brennaman is staying on the sixth floor of the Mayflower Hotel in Warshington D.C. if any of his stalkers want to find him.
