Today I take some blog space to congratulate Cincinnati's Ken Griffey, Jr. on becoming the sixth player in MLB history to hit 600 home runs. I'm not sure Sammy Sosa really belongs on there, and there will always be questions about Barry Bonds. But with all that he's been through, all the secondgeneration, first overall Draft pick hype, then the injuries and inquiries about what he had left, and the way he has always gone about playing the game, Griffey forever deserves to be on that elite list of players. He truly is one of the all time greats of this game. A fivetool superstar in his earlier years, and one of the most exciting players in my lifetime (since 1987, the year he was drafted), the younger Griffey could have been at 700 home runs by now had his health remained steady. Even so, 600 is quite an accomplishment. So once again, congratulations Ken Griffey, Jr.
