Grady Sizemore overrated?

can we put another similar player in this discussion.

.305
16 hr
64 rbi
54 r
11 sb

from someone who probably wasn't drafted in any league and was out for over a month with a feak injury. Pretty close numbers to Grady and just imagine what he would have done if he hadn't gotten hurt.

Can you guess who it is?

Don't really see how it's that close.

They should both be extremely tight in AVG, RBI, SB, and R.

Damon is averaging 23.4 HR/AB when his career average is 44.3 HR/AB.

Sizemore has improved his HR/AB to 27.9, better than the 29.1 he posted in '05.

I'd be willing to bet Sizemore is better than Damon next year.


Sounds about right. I see Sizermore's average number of HRs to be Damon's ceiling although he might not be as quick as him.

Don't worry Sizemore will be 30-30 by the time he is 27. There are not a lot of sure things in baseball but that much I can be confident about.

Like I mentioned before he missed over a month during the season dropping his AB total to 350 compared to Sizemore's 500 ABs. If you compensate for those missed games, both players' numbers would be a lot closer. The only number that would be off would probably be Rs, but other then that things would seem closer if not superior.

I think he is talking about Rios, and if you took Rios over Sizemore or are even suggesting they are close in value, you should never ever play fantasy baseball again in your life.

Better yet how about you compare him to D-Wright. Not saying Sizemore is better than him, no way, but if we are going to do these BS Byrnes and Rios comparisons, minus well comepare him to somebody like D-Wright.

Let's see you picked him up in the 3rd round. He is currently sitting at 10th of all Outfielders in my league.

When did Bay get picked up in your league? He's sitting at 11th.
What about Crawford? 2nd round? he's at 14th. What about Ichiro?
He's 20th.

Looks like Sizemore is a damn good value in the 3rd round.

What the heck are your league settings? In a basic yahoo 5x5, Crawford is ranked 3 spots higher, and the statistics back it up. What cats is your league using?

Not even a debate really. He's on a bad team and still putting up decent #'s, not to mention he's only 24. More like this thread is overrated...

I took Sizemore with pick 75 in my $$ league. I am definitely happy with that. He was actually my 3rd OF after Berkman and Matsui. I didn't want to take 3 OF that early but I certainly couldn't pass over Sizemore at that point. He was the 18th OF taken in this league, not including Soriano and Figgins.
