A few loose ends on the Griffey signing…
- Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com details the attendance incentives in Junior’s new contract. Ticket sales have picked up since the signing. Knobler also notes that Griffey will once again wear #24 on his Mariners jersey.
- The Chicago Tribune suggests that the chance to play DH tipped the scales in Griffey’s decision between the Mariners and Braves.
- John Hickey of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer notes that the Mariners released OF Michael Wilson to make room for Griffey. Drafted in the second round in 2001, Wilson has never seen the majors.
- And finally, Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times has video highlights of Griffey’s press conference.
