Dear Jeff Suppan...

Please take a cue from Mr. Griffey:

"While I feel I am still able to make a contribution on the field and nobody in the Mariners front office has asked me to retire, I told the Mariners when I met with them prior to the 2009 season and was invited back that I will never allow myself to become a distraction," Griffey said.

"I feel that without enough occasional starts to be sharper coming off the bench, my continued presence as a player would be an unfair distraction to my teammates and their success as a team is what the ultimate goal should be," he said.

Here I'll even do the editing for you:

"While I feel I am still able to make a contribution on the field and nobody in the Brewers front office has asked me to retire, I told the Brewers when I met with them prior to the 2007 season and was invited back that I will never allow myself to become a distraction," Suppan said.

"I feel that without enough occasional appearances to be sharper coming out of the bullpen, my continued presence as a player would be an unfair distraction to my teammates and their success as a team is what the ultimate goal should be," he said.

Two posts in two days, SBTG? You know that Walsh doesn't write that morning link-dump column anymore, right?
