No surprise: Griff won’t be back

SHARE No surprise: Griff won’t be back

It’s no surprise, but reports the White Sox have decided not to bring back Ken Griffey Jr.

Considering Griff is due $16M next season, this isn’t exactly breaking news.

And as Joe Cowley reported on Oct. 8, it was very unlikely Griffey was going to rework his contract and take a lot less money to stay in Chicago.

So Griffey is gone. It was worth a shot, but it didn’t really work out.
