If you think small, you'll go nowhere in life.
When you got no money, you go after used "fixer uppers." That's pretty much what they're telling us. Be excited!
Talent is God Given: be humble.
Fame is man given: be thankful.
Conceit is self given: be careful.
I think Sizemore would be a good idea. Low risk high reward type of option. You don't have to give up anything huge to get him so if he flops no biggy, but if he comes back decently, you have that left handed bat to spell ludwick and a caddy in cf for Hamilton.
I'm fine with Sizemore, if they had done something to shore up the other holes in the lineup.
He's still got the selfie street cred going for him, so there's that.

yes, this really is how we make our living.
I'd love to see him make it all the way back, but that seems like a minor miracle at this point. Why not?
". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008
Is there still actual potential here? It seems like he hasn't even been productive when on the field in a while. Anyone followed him?
Can't hurt. A lefty swinger to platoon with Ludwick is high on my wish list. If he's not playing every day you can keep him healthy. This is a Beane type move that if it works you look like a genius and if it doesn't you didn't pay him anything so no harm done. You could get some decent production from two guys in that spot. Plus, there's the chance that the year off to heal up could get you lightning in a bottle, like Davis in '96.
