Ken Griffey, Jr. and Petticoat Junction

I'm dating myself, but when I was young there was a TV show called Petticoat Junction. One of the characters was Uncle Joe (played by Edgar Buchanan), and the show's song showed Uncle Joe sitting on the porch of the Shady Rest Hotel, asleep in a rocking chair. The song had a line in it that said, "And there is Uncle Joe, he's a-movin' kind of slow at the junction. . .."

Well, read this about Junior Griffey and draw your own conclusions.

And, to think, they fired the hitting coach because the team wasn't hitting well.

Skipper Don Wakamatsu has some work to do.
