But we do like to discuss the game. Here’s a conversation he and I had when designated hitter, Ken Griffey Jr. had a base hit but was replaced by pinch runner, Josh Wilson (at least, I think that’s who it was):
Me: Why did they replace Griffey?
Dad: Because he can’t run fast anymore.
Me: Oh. Is it because he’s injured or is it because he’s just slow?
Dad: I think he’s just slow…he’s getting old.
