    He has been out of baseball for two years with a variety of injuries of the knees and back. Its okay but I would be more impressed with Giancarlo Stanton being traded to us.

    Maybe this is being done to set up a Sizemore for Stanton trade.  Laughing. Use left and right arrows to navigate.

    Ho hum....yawn. Where does Sizemore fit in? He has been out of baseball for two years, and in the previous two years he played 71 games (.706 OPS) and 33 games (.560 OPS). Hard to understand this one. He is an upgrade over no OF we currently have on the roster. We now have Gomes, Vic, JBJ, Nava, and Carp who can play OF, along with Sizemore. Unless this is a prelude to getting someone better, this move is a head scratcher.

    One of those no lose type signings.  Another solid move by BC.  Imagine if he can stay healthy.

    sizemore if healthy has better running skills than Gomes,Carp or Nava.he was a great prospect when coming up.So like another post i had you don't just lose the skills.they diminish but you don't lose them.Now package a Carp and a starter.you get a great player.

    The need in the OF for us is not an oft-injured LHH CF. We need a RHH power hitting OF. You might be right, but I would have preferred JBJ in CF this year. Sizemore hasn't had a good year in five years.

    Could be, Joe.  The signing says they're not sure he's mlb ready. Insurance.

    I am far from a JBJ fan and think he will be WAY over his head filling shoes that he can NEVER fill......however, talk about a big kick in the crotch if you're JBJ!!  "You're our 3rd ranked prospect....but we think we need to bring in a player that hasnt played more than 30 games in 3 years to compete with you"..........ouch.

    I was always a fan of Seattle area product Grady Sizemore. but I'm surprised Sizemore landed an MLB contract this offseason.

    I last saw Sizemore play during Spring Training 2011:

    If Sizemore can play like he did in 2008 then this deal is a good one...or if, as you say, they package Carp and Dempster for a RHH power OF or insurance at 3B then this makes sense. The way it is right now, I don't like it.

    JBJ just doesn't seem to be ready. With this deal they can take their time with JBJ and if Sizemore gets hurt or sucks they can easily dump him.

    Dempster and Carp will net you nothing more than another backup outfielder/backup infielder/relief pitcher/B level prospect.  The money those two are costing us right now almost makes them untadeable AS A PACKAGE unless we pay a bunch of money.  Ask yourself this:  would you trade a power RHH in the OF for Dempster and Carp??  a lot depends on your definition of a 'Power hitting RHH'......but surely the answer is "NO"!!!

    i agree it is a little puzzling but in the two years he has been out of baseball he must be 100% healthy.he is a good fielder and doesn't have bad walk to strikeout ratio's.had speed and some power.

    My guess is that this is a prelude to another deal. At least I hope thats what it is, since we now have six OF on the roster. And JBJ deserves a chance to win the CF job.

    We have enough prospects in the minors to sweeten the deal significantly. Lavarnway is another chip that could be included, for example.
