Grady Sizemore?

Earned the CF spot and will start the season batting in the middle of the lineup?

Should I drop Bryce Harper for him???

No seriously, my final OF spot is between Desmond Jennings and Adam Eaton so I have a close eye on this. Anybody care to comment? He's only 31. Any chance at staying on the field and having an impact? Players do pretty well when hitting in the middle of the Red Sox lineup.

I like Sizemore as much as anybody but I'd certainly rather have Eaton and Jennings. I grabbed him as my very last pick in a 14 team league with deep rosters. Could he have a back from the dead kind of season? Sure, but I probably wouldn't call him even a top 60 OF at this point.

Is he full time? I expected a platoon of sorts to try and keep him healthy.

I've read that he won the starting job in CF, but they do have guys like Mike Carp and Daniel Nava who can play the OF so I'd expect that his ABs/gms will be managed to some degree. I'd think of him as a 4 out of 5 games kind of guy as long as he stays healthy and productive. High maintenance for sure, but if you can manage that, he has some potential.

Playing time is going to be an issue. He's probably rosterable in a 14-team daily league if you've got a deep enough bench to hold a spare OF for his off days. Other than that, I think his production's a bit of a mirage.

In leagues you can set your lineup daily I would roster him. He will probably jump all around the lineup, I can see him batting 1,2 and 5-9 and play 4-5 days a week. The Red Sox have the deepest bench and bullpen in the majors and one of the highest OBP lineups too, which means lots of ABs for the 1,2 hitters. With Victorino sort of hurting I am optimistic for Sizemore right now and have picked him up in one of my two money leagues.

With Victorino on DL as of today, Grady should be seeing pretty consistent playing time for the near future. They have a deep enough bench that he doesn't need to play everyday, but as others have said, in a daily league, he's worth rostering for now.

Sizemore should be good until let's say...oh the 3rd week of April. The real bet should be who hits the DL first, Sizemore in Boston or Brian Roberts in NY lol.

That's a good question. If Sizemore is ever on 1st base against the Yankees I'll be watching for a gruesome collision at second.
