Damon-66 Three rounds later
I think he is this years victim of hype....Morneau....Patterson....etc.

Performs solidly in three cats (BAVG, HRs, RBIs) above average at SB and great at Runs. Is Sizemore a 5 category guy? Sort of. He sure doesn't hurt you in any of the categories, but he doesn't really do anything above the average in the mentioned HR, RBI, and BA block. You're mainly drafting Sizemore for the help to SBs and Runs, so if you have SB covered by some other positions, then wait and see if he's available somewhere past the 5th.
On another note, Sizemore may be due for a drop in numbers. In 640 ABs last year, he walked 52 times and SO 132. Will his BA drop as pitchers start having him chase stuff out of the zone more? Also, while he had 22 SBs, he was CS 10 times. Just notes wanted to pass along!
Guys that help you in all 5 cats are more valuable than you make out. The best comparison is not to "the average", but to a replacement player. And the issue is not how he did last year, but what you can expect next year.
Let's look at the K/BB ratio
April-May: 36/9 or 4K for every BB
June-Oct.: 94/43 or 2.2K for every BB

But anyway, I'm not saying Sizemore won't have value next year. I'm saying he won't have 3rd round value. He isn't a value pick if the price you have to pay for him is taking him there. Looking at wkelly's post, I wouldn't take Sizemore before Mastui, or Berkman, or Damon.
Also, didn't catch the splits on his K/BB ratio, so thank you for that info. However, while he did walk more, that's still just a ton of K's, and he'll need to cut down on that overall number IMO.

Am I missing something
Not that you say that. Where does the comparison come from?davidmarver wrote:I don't understand the comparison between Morneau and Sizemore. Grady played an entire season well compared to how Morneau only had 74 games played in '04.
