The Paper Trail of May 12

by John Perrotto

--The Seattle Times' Steve Kelley writes that sadly, it's time for Ken Griffey Jr. to go.

--The New York Times' Tyler Kepner writes that Dallas Braden is the mouth that roared perfectly.

--The Toronto Star's Richard Griffin writes that moving the June series between the Blue Jays and Phillies from Toronto to Philadelphia was the only safe and sane choice.

--The New York Daily News' Tim Smith writes that Chris Carter is an "Animal" on the Mets' bench.

--The St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Jeff Gordon writes that high-priced hitters are failing the Cardinals in the clutch.

Moving the series from Toronto may have been the safest choice, but I'm surprised they couldn't have found a neutral site to move it to - like Detroit, as the Tigers would be in Atlanta that weekend - weak logic there.

Of course Griffin said that moving the game was the perfect decision, it was a Beeston decision. He could beat up a Toronto journalist's small child and there'd be a story the next day about how the little punk had it coming.
