MLB Rumor Wire: Ken Griffey Jr. to Seattle?

Andrew KneelandSenior Writer IMay 10, 2008

One thing you have to love about baseball is how the rumors never stop. There are always players wanting to be traded, and owners wanting to trade players. Let's dive right in to the latest rumors coming out of the MLB:

 

Ken Griffey Jr. 

Seattle Mariners president Chuck Armstrong certainly created a firestorm of media attention when he spoke about Griffey Jr. earlier this week:

"I think everyone in Seattle would like to see him retire in a Mariners uniform. He was born a Mariner, and I'd like to see him finish up as a Mariner."

However, on Wednesday, the ballclub denied that they have any imminent plans to add the future Hall of Famer. A team spokesman said Armstrong was merely being sentimental.

 

Jacque Jones 

Jones was released by the Detroit Tigers on Monday, and he is drawing interest from around the league.

Both the Florida Marlins and San Diego Padres have had difficulty getting production out of centerfield. Jones is certainly sparking interest from those teams.

 

David Wells 

While the struggles of the Yankees' rotation are common knowledge, not everyone knows that the almost-45-year-old David Wells is lobbying for the job.

It's not often that a pitcher can still be in the big leagues 10 years after his perfect game, but David Wells may just have that chance.

Next Saturday is the 10-year anniversary of his perfect game against the Twins. Wells said that he hopes the gift he receives is a new Yankees contract.
