Junior starts Sunday

Caddyshack_carl There was some speculation Ken Griffey Jr. wouldn't start Sunday because he would be coming back from a late game Saturday night, but Junior was in the lineup for the third game in a row against the Marlins. He's still looking for No. 600, and he might get it today against Ryan Tucker, who was just called up from Double A Carolina.

The ball travels well in day games, so Griffey -- as Caddyshack Carl would say -- "he's got that going for him.''

Griffey would like to hit it here, because his family has come down from Orlando for the weekend.
