Grady's not close to Abreu IMO - even in his prime......... and I think, like somebody metioned, he'll be a better real-life player than fantasy player, since he won't get a lot of HR/SB's.

The Johnny Damon with less speed comparison seems to be a bit better.

I agree, the Abreu comment is off and inaccurate.

I don't want him to be a better real-life player than fantasy player.

Hehe, I will take a Rocco Baldelli-like big leaguer :-) .

Here are their minor league numbers going into 2004 (Sizemore had 464 more minor league at bats as he played for one more minor league season, being 18 in his first season vs. 19 for Rocco):

Sizemore: BA .289, SLG .404, 38 SB, 19 HR, 74 2B and 260 K.

Baldelli: BA .277, SLG .431, 62 SB, 30 HR, 60 2B and 242 K.

Sizemore hit for a little more power this season. I think the players could go on to have comparable careers. Sizemore will probably hit for a slighty higher average and steal fewer bases though.
