Hamilton was a crack addict that hit bottom and got back in shape. Sizemore didn't leave the game to get high, he left because his body said "ENOUGH!"
Doesn't mean that after two years of healing and rehab that he can't come back, just that this isn't a comp for Hamilton because no one is a comp for Hamilton.
Thank God for that.

Getting closer to happening.
CINCINNATI -- The Reds are making efforts to add former Indians center fielder Grady Sizemore.
Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com reported Sunday that Cincinnati and Sizemore's agent are in "advanced talks" for the free agent.
MLB.com first reported earlier this month of the Reds' interest in Sizemore.
"Still working on it," Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said Sunday in a text message.
My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!
