2008-09-29 10:30:00Tigers/White Sox Play-In GameDavid (Boston): In retrospect, was the Griffey trade a good one for the White Sox?

I don't think you could call it a bad trade, it isn't as though Danny Richar or Nick Masset would have done anything to help the Sox in September. Furthermore, I don't think they will be missed in the future either as I don't know that Richar will out-perform Sox future 2B Chris Getz. (William Burke)
