07:32 AM ET 05.11 | Ken Griffey's days in Seattle may be numbered. Last week, when some members of the press corps asked manager Don Wakamatsu why he hadn't used Griffey as a pinch hitter for Rob Johnson late in a game, Wakamatsu was vague. Two Mariners players, however, weren't. Both are younger players, fond of Griffey. Neither had an ax to grind. So why didn't Wakamatsu go to Junior off the bench? "He was asleep in the clubhouse," one player said. ... The other player, who knows Griffey a little better, tried to rationalize. "He doesn't sleep well at night, he's away from his family, he's comfortable in the clubhouse," he said.
