Page 2 staff

He decided he'd rather stay with the lowly Devil Rays than join the heat of the pennant race with the first-place Cubs. So, what the heck is Fred McGriff thinking? Use your mouse to check out his inner thoughts.

"I keep telling Sammy that I'm allergic to ivy. I break out all over the place. It's really ugly."

"I hate day games. I can't stand to get up early. Plus, the sun makes my ivy allergy even worse."

"I've already bought $16,000 worth of plane tickets for an October vacation with my family. And they're nonrefundable!"

"Tom Emanski says get in front of the ball. Tom says glove to the ground. Tom says use two hands. Tom says Chicago is cold in the winter."

"If Sosa needs protection so bad, why doesn't he call Tony. He's not doing anything until at least next May."

"Maybe I should have looked in the paper before I made this decision. The Cubs really are in first place."

"I might reconsider if the Cubs can get me a nickname that's a little more intimidating."
