Griffey wants resolution before spring training

Time has become a factor in any trade the Seattle Mariners might make involving center fielder Ken Griffey Jr., whose intended destination is Cincinnati.
Griffey's agent, Brian Goldberg, indicated he and his client would prefer to see the matter resolved trade or no trade by the mid-February start of spring training.
Asked Monday night if a deadline for a deal existed, Goldberg replied, "Deadline' is probably too strong a word, but there are so many factors in families' lives that get disrupted if there's a trade that if something happens with Kenny, it's better that it happens before it gets to spring training.
Goldberg noted that the factors range from Griffey's need to move his family, his charitable endeavors and his commercial ventures some featuring him in a Mariners uniform.
Goldberg said that he has discussed these concerns with Seattle management. They're very understanding of the outside influences, Goldberg said.
