Griffey plays like All-Star of old
SAN FRANCISCO -- A fair percentage of players on the 2007 National League All-Star roster grew up watching Ken Griffey Jr. in Seattle and reveling in his inimitable style, so they were pumped to see some vintage Junior on display in this year's game.Griffey's list of admirers includes more than just outfielders. Even the left-handed fastball-changeup artists in the group could relate.
Griffey's always been one of my favorite players. Seeing him healthy and having a good year again, I'm happy for him. He looks like he used to, smiling out there and having a good time.
-- NL catcher Russell Martin
