With Sizemore's recent surge, no chance. Surely, the average is lousy, but he's still posted a .900 OPS over the past month and as you pointed out, his season to date is fantastic: 12 HR, 15 SB, on schedule for a 30/35 season. He'll eventually bump up his average to .270-280, and really the fact that his average is relatively low, but still hitting in the upper .250's is not much to chew at. One potential bump in the road for Sizemore is his run total, given that Hafner is in a down year and projects to be a trend while V-Mart is in an unusual power drought, but should post his 100 or so runs.
