This post is really just to juxtapose Avatars of Stringer Bell and Pee Wee Herman,

but that being said,

Is it reasonable to say that "Concern for Grady Sizemore" topics can be put to rest for a little while?

Always seems to happen when I complain about my players ;-D


Can you start a thread bitching about Edwin Encarnacion's lack of production? :-D


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

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


I traded DLee away so don't start one about him. :-t

Morneau, Roberts, and Street could all use a mention though. :-D

* Grady Sizemore went 4-for-5 with a career-high seven RBIs in Thursday's win over the Royals, adding to what has been an overlooked, MVP-caliber season. Hitting .272 for a 59-67 tea! m all but eliminates someone from most MVP discussions, but Sizemore has been about as valuable as a .270 hitter from a fourth-place team can possibly be. Thursday's homer was his 29th of the year, which ranks second in the AL, and he's drawn 80 walks while stealing 31 bases in 122 games.

Toss in outstanding defense in center field and Sizemore is having an MVP-caliber season even if most voters would misguidedly never consider him based solely on the Indians' poor season. Sizemore is hitting .272/.384/.530 and is on pace for 38 homers, 80 total extra-base hits, 40 steals, 102 RBIs, 101 runs, and 104 walks, which is simply a monster season regardless of how bad his teammates have been. At this point he may be the game's most overlooked great player.

No kidding. He's the only one in my OF right now that I'm considering benching. And he's supposed to be the stud. :-t
