Here's the story. He ruptured a tendon in his ankle running the bases today. This is so sad. He's still a Hall-of-Famer for his dominance in his Seattle years, but it's positively strange the way the injuries have gone in the last three or so years.
It doesn't help that Austin Kearns isn't healthy, and I think Sean Casey is in a similar "nagging injury" boat. Griffey or no Griffey, the Reds were pretty much done for the season anyway, even if they're not that far back, but this loss should preclude any trades of the future for the now on the part of Jim Bowden.
