    Congrats to Griffey Jr. Out of the last three members to join the 600 HR club between himself, Bonds, and Sosa, Griffey is the biggest class act out of the three.

    Best player of this current generation. His numbers were better than Bonds in their respective primes. Plus he was the best CF which is a much more difficult position than LF.

    congrats to griffey. one of my all-time favorite players ! philly fans so wanted this record to be broke in our stadium that we booed our pitchers when they walked him which speaks volumes for junior's character.

    yeah it's not like our pitchers got booed for bad pitching (both times were in crucial points) but we wanted to see a guy who is deserving reach a great milestone.

    classic :icon_smile:

    This is long overdue, but I wanna give mad props to Griffey for reaching this milestone. I think this deserved more attention than it actually recieved. After all, he's in a higher class than the last two guys that passed this mark, because, IMO, he didn't need any help, if you know what I mean!

    I am definitely with you on this one. It seems that the media prefers reporting on the controversial players (Bonds, Sosa) over the guys with true character (Griffey, Jr). I guess they think the character guys aren't interesting enough, and that's a shame....
