    The guy is a Left Handed Bat and I realize this.
    He has been really banged up last few years, but the dude is a mighty good ball player that will come CHEAP for his 2-3 yr stint.

    This move would allow us to dangle OF prospects like Kalish or Reddick as we seek out RH OF batting prospects.


    I think Sizemore is a fantastic option. Low risk HIGH Reward


    INJURIES are FLUKE take a chance on the 29 y/o OF

    we already have enough players that suffer from flukes all the time. but i must admit i am tempted. i say no thank you. some guys are just injury prone and cant stay healthy no matter what they do. jed im made of glass lowrie comes to mind.

    what have the injuries been?

    Not sure what other options are out there, but if it's Sizemore w/Reddick or Kalish as injury insurance, there are worse things.

    the price would be right. I personnaly like Mike Cuddyer to fill our RF needs.

    What Boxer said ... it's okay to have a Grady on your team but we have several possible Grady's already.

    Sizemore would fill the role....the role of aging, oft-injured, overpriced player that provides zero production........keeper
