We don’t really pay much attention to the Senior Circuit. Pretty much a snooze. But we do note with pleasure the return to form of Ken Griffey, Jr., in our minds the best player of the 90s (sorry Barry), his career sadly interrupted by injury. Granted, he’s not the player of old, but with a home run tonight he’s up to 21 on the season with a .289 BA, .368 OBP, and .548 SLG. More encouraging is the fact that he has improved with each month of the season, posting .244. .283, .303, and .333 BAs in the months from April-July. His July OPS in 1.242. There’s never been a prettier swing or more elegant player in the field. We’re glad to see him return, even if he’s lost a step. Especially as his birth preceded ours by precisely one day. Who says 35 is old?
