Seriously though, over the last three years here are Griffey's positional + fielding numbers:

-22.7
-37.3
-18.8

Weight that 5-4-3 and you get around -30 runs. Griffey is gaining a few runs shifting to DH. Assuming he does shift to DH 95% of the time. The contract is cheap, and if the increased ticket sales talk works out, then good for them. Griffey made more sense than Garrett Anderson anyways.
