Not sure how to break this to you, but Grady Sizemore will not be able to go on Opening Day

I know. I’m just as shocked as you are. But the cold hard truth is staring us right in the face:

 

Someone hold me. I don’t know what to expect in this harsh and capricious world anymore.

    I can’t hold you: I could strain my back.

    I don’t understand…how did this happen so soon? I swear, there are some guys that can make themselves a sandwich and end up losing a limb.

      Actually, I owe my short bartending career to exactly that.

        Wha? Tell me it wasn’t cutting up limes on your lap.

    Brady Anderson fell off of a cliff (metaphorically) once the juice stopped flowing.

      It’s a shame we’re only allowed to give comments one thumb down.

    as a clevelander and tribe fan im not susre im even mad still at this move or this happeneing.im more lmao @ the dolans and tribes front office for looking like jackass’s once again for this horrible signing. they are beyond enamored with grady for sme reason…oh well not tlike they were going to do much this yr anyways unless everything went perfect like the beg. of last season

      You point out that the team could only compete this season if “everything went perfect,” but also criticize the front office for re-signing someone who was one of the five best players in baseball in 2008. Isn’t that the kind of relatively small-cost risk a team like the Indians should be taking?

        Luke the key to that statement is 2008, that was 4 long years, and 2 or 3 knee surgeries ago……

        Point taken. But while I know his staying healthy wasn’t/isn’t likely, and even if healthy, the 2005-2008 version of Sizemore isn’t coming back, I don’t think there were many options for a 1-year, $5M contract that provided more potential reward. They rolled the dice, it doesn’t look likely to pay off at the moment. I don’t think that makes it a colossal blunder.

    I read hbt every day and I rarely see an Indians story. Well I finally got one. Great. I guess that’ll be Cleveland’s highlight for the year. I’m so pissed right now!

    Dear Grady,

    Even I think you’re hurt too often.

    Your pal,

    Rocco Baldelli
