Mariners, Griffey nearing deal

Ken Griffey Jr. could be coming home in a few days.

A little more than nine years after being traded to the Reds for four players, Griffey and the Mariners are nearing agreement on a one-year contract.

Griffey, who is playing in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tournament this week, could join the Mariners in Spring Training as early as Wednesday – the first full-squad workout.

Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik would neither confirm or deny that a deal is imminent, saying, “I do not comment on free agents.”

The deal would not be finalized until Griffey passes a physical, which is expected to occur in the Phoenix area.

I wonder who wants the deal more, Seattle or Griffey?
