Ken Griffey Jr. done In 2007

Ken Griffey Jr.
Because of a strained groin, Cincinnati Reds’ star outfielder Ken Griffey Jr. will call it a day for his 2007 season. He hit 30 home runs this year, with 93 RBI’s with a .277 batting average. Griffey left his Wednesday game against the Chicago Cubs because of the groin injury.

“You hope its not as bad as it feels,” said Ken.

Not that this injury has an effect on the struggling Reds’ season, but this has been just more of the same in Griffey’s career. He’s got 593 career home runs, but we have to assume that he’d be giving Barry Bonds a run for his money right now had he stayed healthy throughout his career. He’s produced every year he’s been in the majors, but despite all of his accomplishments, we’ll always look back on his career and wonder what could have been.
