I think it's important to keep in mind the state of the Indians as a whole this year. When the team struggles, so do the players.

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.


Well, a good number of the time Sizemore is striking out looking and so, it's apparent he's second guessing himself at times. The silver lining is that he's not exactly hacking it and working counts a good number of the time as well.

I agree... why is WHIP a cat for pitchers in a typical 5x5 while hitters typically use AVG and not OBP... makes no sense. :-t
When it comes to exaggerating, I always give 110%.

Nah...I don't own him. :-D

But, I do know that we both own Derrek Lee. A thread will be coming momentarily. ;-D
