07:55 AM ET 06.03 | Though Milton Bradley did get a tip, he was surprised by Ken Griffey's retirement announcement. "I sat down yesterday with Griffey and talked to him the whole game and I didn't think it was going to happen. I happened to spend some time with him in the video room watching his last 40 or so home runs and just reliving them with him, and I didn't know that was going to be one of the last moments we spent as teammates. But I'm glad I had the time." Bradley said he called Griffey after the game to tell him of the win and that Griffey was already in his car driving back to his home in Florida. "I just called him, he was driving back to Florida on his own terms, smiling, happy, still classy," Bradley said."
