Griffey's negotiations with the Braves were moving at a steady pace until Tuesday afternoon, when the veteran outfielder learned of a report in The Atlanta-Journal Constitution which indicated he'd already decided to play in Atlanta.
Since then, Griffey has had limited contact with the Braves and sources have indicated that this could be further proof that he truly is sensitive about potentially offending Mariners officials and fans in Seattle.
Oooh, that's bad. This is why I don't always trust DOB's word, or whoever wrote the headlines on the AJC that day.
Thanks for the tip, Chris!
