Griffey's return to Seattle unlikely -- for now 

October, 31, 2008
Ken Griffey Jr. is now a free agent. Is there a good fit with the Mariners? John Hickey wonders

    It's far too soon to say what new GM Jack Zduriencik's plans are and how much of a baseball history buff he is. But Safeco Field was built with Griffey in mind, and it would make sense to me to see J-Z give Griffey a try, to see if the left-handed [Griffey] who helped make the Mariners a franchise can use the park to his benefit.

    If it doesn't work, the Mariners wouldn't be out much money. If it does, there is the potential of high performance.
