Who would you rather have Griffey or Anderson.

Not even a contest. Anderson's platoon split isn't nearly as pronounced as Griffey's, which means he doesn't take nearly as much advantage from having Matt Diaz cover him vs. LHP. What's more, Anderson really hasn't played the field full-time for several years now, and Anderson's plate discipline pales in comparison to Griffey's. If the Braves don't get Griffey, they should pass on Anderson altogether, and seek a trade instead.

John Perrotto of Baseball Prospectus wrote this morning that the Mariners would consider Anderson if Griffey signed in Atlanta. He said nothing about the Braves considering Anderson if Griffey signed in Seattle. This jives with what David O'Brien has written: that the Braves have little to no interest in Garret Anderson.

I'm skeptical about Heyman's report.
