Grady Sizemore Hits DL

May 31, 2009

The Cleveland Indians placed OF Grady Sizemore (elbow) on the 15-day DL.  Chris Gimenez was called up from Triple-A Columbus to take his spot on the roster, although Ben Francisco will take the majority of the ABs.  Sizemore was hitting .223 with 29 Runs, 9 HR, 31 RBIs, and 7 SBs.  Francisco is hitting .275 with 24 Runs, 5 HRs, 20 RBIs, and 9 SBs.

    Sucks, although when Kobe made it to the Finals I began to root for Orlando. Didn’t want the Kobe-LeBron talk for two weeks.

    I am a Magic Fan, I agree with you about the LeBron/Kobe talk.
    I would have been happy with a LaBron/Carmello Matchup.

    One other thing. As far as Matchups go Kobe/Labron is not Bird/Magic or Russell/Chamberlain.

    I had Sizemore last year and he was great, I didn’t draft him this year because he got picked up in the 1st round in my Yahoo league. Guess I got lucky. Maybe the rest will help him out later in the season though.

    I agree on the Lebron/Melo matchup too. That would have been fun to see. Wonder when we’ll see the Dwight Howard puppet on ESPN lol.

    I still remember Melo winning that championship up in ‘Cuse against Kansas. Your right, it should have put him on a quicker pace to Super Stardom than ‘Bron, but that kid is just a beast. Carmelo is still a great player and he’s still imrpoving his game, so he’s no bum by any stretch.
