Cleveland has been involved in conversations in recent weeks with San Diego about Melvin Upton, Jr., but seems nothing has been close.

Willie Weinbaum ESPN 

In our Cooperstown interview on Friday, Ken Griffey Jr. joked about Sunday's Hall of Fame induction: "I get to be on stage with a whole lot of people that have set a bar and only a few get to join...I'm going to be a rookie again and hopefully they don't tease me too much, and I don't have to carry their bags. They know a lot about me, I know a lot about them, so if they try to give me some, I've got some ammo that I can come back with them. But they're still going to call me 'rook' probably."
