Expect a second half OPS+ of 120 because that is all Grady knows how to do.


If the Indians don't shut him down first thanks to them being so far out of the wildcard race. Please keep hitting that reply button...you've nearly eliminated what little credibility you had left with your juvenile debating skills and arrogant tone.


Since returning from the DL at this current moment:

5/12 (.416 average), 4 Runs, 1 HR, 5 RBI, 3 BB, 1 SB.

You're ignoring the fact that at the time the trade was consummated Grady was facing a 6-8 week recovery period if he opted for surgery. Given the uncertainty surrounding his elbow, AT THAT TIME, Upton for Sizemore was not an unreasonable trade.

What do you mean, "at that time"?

Activated from DL

Grady Sizemore Profile

Outfielder Grady Sizemore has been activated by the Cleveland Indians from the 15-day disabled list. Outfielder Trevor Crowe was optioned to Triple-A Columbus to make roster room.




So I still stand ground, it was a bad trade for the side recieiving J-Up, because AT THAT TIME, there was no uncertainty surrounding his elbow, as he was being activated from the DL.

And since being activated, he has been, well, Grady Sizemore.

^you're right...my recollection of the time-line was off. It doesn't change the fact that there was/is a reasonable amount of risk involved in trading for Grady. It's more than just about selling off a struggling superstar. A few posts later I gave the trade thumbs up if the OP was the one receiving Sizemore, but I don't think it's grounds to diminish the integrity of his league as you did.

^Agreed. If Sizemore was facing the uncertainties of surgery, I see the risk. My thoughts and posts were in reflection to Upton being acquired for Size the day he got activated.
