Writes Gerry Spratt:
Ken Griffey Jr. is going through withdrawals.
No more carbonated caffeine. No more high fructose corn syrup.
He's given up soda.
"I was drinking 10-12 a day, and Chone Figgins challenged me to give 'em up eight days ago."
Good clubhouse chemistry: saving a teammate from bad chemistry in the clubhouse. Now all Figgins has to do is work on getting Eric Byrnes to quit energy drinks, getting Eric Byrnes to quit Adderall, getting Eric Byrnes to quit potent cocaine analogues, and getting Eric Byrnes to quit ecstasy.
It's like watching Buddy out there.
