Sizemore still has elite talent, but he has a long ways to go to get out of this prolonged slump which spans back to last year. With Ichiro at least you know what you're getting on a consistent basis - which is AVG and Runs and some SBs (at this age I don't see him approaching 40 ever again...anything close to 30 should be considered great). And Núñez is a solid closer...not elite but above average.
So I would do it. You have a great group of keepers that I don't see Sizemore cracking this year. I'd put Pujols, ARod, Utley, Crawford, McCann, Jeter, McCutchen, Halladay, Sabathia, Greinke, Jimenez, Garza, and Soria all ahead of him at this point.
Haha, I own all of these players. I'd take Ichiro and nUnez any day. Sizemores FB/GB is down his contact rates are down his BBL/K rates are down. I traded Jimenez and jackson for him and hamels. Worst idea ever. He's a bum. Ichiro is an absolute producer, sure his steals will be down 3 or 4 this year but honestly you know what youre gonna get and nunez is so underrated. Hes a champ. Lilly will be solid but he wont be worth ichiro, i expect around a 4 ERA who averages like 17 pts a week. see what you think viewtopic.php?t=411912
