The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported today that former Mariner Ken Griffey Jr. had spurned the Mariners to sign with the Atlanta Braves, but Griffey denied any such decision.
Griffey told MLB.com’s Jim Street ( www.mariners.com ) that he was “still kicking things around with my family and have not made a decision.”
“This is the first time in my career that I have been a free agent,” Griffey told MLB.com, “and it’s nerve-wracking.”
The 39-year-old who played with Seattle from 1989-99 and who Seattle now hopes will serve as DH and left fielder, told the Web site he hoped to make a decision “later today (Tuesday) or early tomorrow morning.”
Griffey, his wife, Melissa and his agent, Brian Goldberg, reportedly are huddled in Orlando, Fla. trying to come to a decision.”
