This is true. He'll probably lead off the entire season, because they don't really have any other options.
Trevor Crowe is the lead off hitter of the future for Cleveland. He could be up next year and Sizemore would then slide down. I'm not sure if they plan on keeping Barfield at the bottom of the lineup or putting him in the 2 hole next year.
