Griffey Drawing Interest

According to Jim Street of, Ken Griffey Jr. is attracting lots of interest already.

Griffey’s agent, Brian Goldberg, told Street that he has been in contact with nine teams regarding his client – six in the American League and three in the National League.  Keep in mind that Goldberg initiated contact with some of these teams.  All of this information was first reported by John Fay on Monday.

Goldberg said that Griffey, who’s open to moving around, won’t price himself out of a job and would consider a contract with incentives.

Goldberg said that Griffey is open to a one-year contract from "the right team in the right place."  The Mariners are one of the nine clubs, but Goldberg contacted them and the response was said to be "polite."
