Is Sizemore opening the season in AAA or CLE?

Postby red » Fri Mar 18, 2005 4:13 pm

Alright Cleveland fans, give me the local news and your opinions.
I've got the option to keep Sizemore for 4 years or Austin Kearns for one. I expect Sizemore to be almost as good as Kearns this year, and I would take that hit in order to ensure the next 3, if I thought Sizemore would actually help this year. But if he's really not going to play I'd probably have to throw him back into the pool and stay with Kearns.
So, is he playing?
What's the word on the street?
Thanks for the advice!

I don't know, but even if he is in CLE where does he play? They have 4 OF already.

I would still keep Sizemore over Kearns even if he is in AAA. How mad will you be when you drop Sizemore and take Kearns for 30 games? Might as well keep Sizemore on your bench for the future than an injured Kearns.

If J-Gon doesn't make the team, Sizemore should start in CF. Kearns for 1 or Sizemore for 4, I will take Sizemore.

I'd take Sizemore also. Kearns might finally break out this year but then you'll be disppointed you have to throw him back. Sizemore is a great prospect that's pretty much ready for the bigs. He should be a stud within a couple of years. He might start the year in AAA though.

How long is Juan Gone gonna stay on the field?

As soon as he exits stage left, Sizemore gets the job. Which should mean plenty of at-bats.

I said it before and I will say it again. Sizemore starts in the minors.Teams just can't seem to resist seeing if Juan Gonzalez can play 140 games games or more in a season. He could be one of the BIGGEST SLEEPERS this season if he could hit that number or close to it.
