    Reds to add centerfielder?

    Sheldon has tweeted that Grady Sizemore may be brought in as 'protection' - WJ thinks he is healthy again. Probably a good gamble.

    He's a lefty. How many left handers can they possibly get in the lineup at once?

    Watch them add a left handed LF too. I'm with people on moving Bruce to center if they aren't going to play Hamilton.

    A depth move which is ok for me. We are seriously lacking in that department. Especially our starting rotation.

    Why not-- sign him to a minor league deal-- if he makes the club out of spring training, then awesome-- if not-- no big deal. low risk signing.

    I could be on board for a minor league deal for Sizemore, if he's now healthy after 2 years rest/rehab and still has what he had in the mid 2000's then he could be a great fit for most of the games in CF, with Hamilton getting a few of the starts per month to spare him.

    Give him a shot, he could be a great/cheap steal at this point.

    Really? Because that's the same garbage team we had last postseason.

    Garbage and postseason really don't belong in the same sentence.

    With the nature of his knee issues, I wouldn't count on him being able to man CF. He could surprise me, but I'd expect him to play more LF than CF.

    I like the move. Low risk-high reward.

    What were your demands when this wasn't a postseason team?

    To be fair, a post season involves more than one game.
