Sox Decline Griffey's Option

From the Associated Press:

Ken Griffey Jr.'s $16.5 million option has been declined by the Chicago White Sox, making the No. 5 home run hitter in major league history eligible for free agency.
Griffey is owed a $4 million buyout, which completes a $116.5 million, nine-year contract that he agreed to with the Cincinnati Reds before the 2000 season.

The 38-year old hit a combined .249 with 18 homers and 71 RBIs in 143 games last season for the Reds and the White Sox.

Hey guys! Four posts since the end of the world series and none addressing how the Baseball Insider writers - and much of the national sports media - called this World Series wrong. Sure, I like to gloat as much as any Philly fan right about now, but isn't it newsworthy or at least worthy of a comment about how so much of the media got this one wrong? Thanks.
