Grady will turn it around, unfortunately it may not be this year. He may be struggling with all the changes that have occurred to the Indians. They need to have their water tested up there. Expected by many to really compete - to playing for 2012

If memory serves me right, Sizemore had a quiet stretch run last season. He typically heats up in June to July but hasn't quite had that strong finish. Then, there's the deal with the homerun derby effect.

I checked out today's Angels/Indians game and it seemed like Sizemore's trying to take the ball the other way. He had two relatively well hit balls but were caught in almost the same spot. He was relatively unlucky average-wise and once he bumped up his average to the low .280's, Sizemore's started to slump a bit since. He could be a bit unlucky again right now after all.

I wouldnt play him against lefties till he started hitting, that is where he is having most of his problems.

All but guaranteed a 30-30 season and he has always been a BA risk. From now on, the rest is just gravy.

Holy smokes fellas. I'm a bit frustrated with the slump in average as well, but c'mon. Not many people the option to bench a top 10 overall fantasy player. Like the other post said, I can't bag on a guy that will likely end up with 30-35 HRs and 40 SBs.

He's got a .203 BAPIP so he's still putting the ball into play, he's just making outs (which some would say is unlucky). He's also only struck out 9 times. So unless someone who is watching the games says that he's just not trying I wouldn't worry about Sizemore. As a matter of fact this is an excellent time to buy on Sizemore if people are this frustrated.

i've given up on wionning average each week, between Dunn and Sizemore it's a losing battle to get a decent average. His 3 steals this week were crucial so I'm not complaining. Sure, more runs would be nice but I'm happy with his performance this year.

That was an unnerving typo for a moment. It's 95 K's on the year, and that's not particularly good. I'd peg that as about average, but if he is to develop into a true top 10 player he will need to cut down on the K's, though he is projected to have 29 K's less than last season. You know he has a good batting eye, he just needs to change his plate approach a little. I'd be much more concerned about his BA if his eye was also a problem, but plate approach is potentially an easy fix if he gets focused on it. Once his luck evens out, and if he continues to increase his contact ratio, his BA will shoot up.
