Ok, so my query is how good can Sizemore become? It seems the hype doesn't quite equal the stats/ How many people drafted him in the 3rd round as their first OFer? His 20/20 production seems ot be well balanced, but my argument is the true value this year. I submit that in the 4th-6th round is a more appropriate round for his selection. A second OF spot is ideal for him. Here is my reasoning, based on actual performance this year:
Sizemore: .294 18HR/18 SB/99 Rs/56 RBI
good, but not great, and definitely not worth a 2nd or 3rd round pick.
.275 19/HR/17 SBs/63Rs/53 RBI
Now I am not arguing the fact that Sizemore is definitely a better long term keeper, but when a WW pick up in Byrnes is similar, we have to examine the actual production for a 3-4 round pick this year.
