I disagree. I'm actually thinking about offering Sizemore for J-Up in my $ league, albeit it's a keeper league.
By no means is a Sizemore/Upton deal veto-worthy in any league, considering Upton's emergence and Grady's injuries/weak performance so far this season.
Grady Sizemore has posted 4 back to back seasons of a OPS+ north of 120 (he also stole 30 bases last year, none the less.), Justin just accomplish this feat for ~3 months.
In no way shape or form should J Upton net you a player of Sizemore's talent. Luke Scott has a OPS+ of 145, would a Luke Scott for Sizemore swap be realistic?
This whole elbow thing is non-sense. Remember when Albert Pujols was going into the 2008 season deemed for offseason elbow surgery? How did that turn out? Please J-Upton for Grady Sizemore is a joke. Justin Upton is a volatile
22 year old. Sizemore is on the best play OFer's in the business. He will be fine, everyone is just panicing. I guess Alex Rodriguuez a week ago for Justin Upton wouldn't be vetoable.
And now Look at Alex's line this week. Superstars will be superstars. Justin Upton got hot, and still has a LOT of bumps and maturing to do, to harvest his full potential. I mean please he has a BABIP of .373!!!

You can't make judgements on a players overall season in such a Short sample size. He had inflammation, went on the DL and corrected it. In the offseason they will clean it up. Look at the year Mariano had last year, he need shoulder surgery all season.
