Yay? Sizemore's comeback progressing

Buster Olney offers some more details about Sizermore's rehab program, and then offers this less than enticing "what if" scenario if Sizemore does get healthy: If Sizemore comes back and is a star again, a whole lot of logical questions will follow: Because Sizemore's current contract has a 2012 option for $8.5 million, would it make sense for the Indians to pick up the option?

Grady Sizemore's Plate Discipline Problems

Interesting article from FanGraphs with some pitchFx charts explaining Grady's problems at the plate. Bottom line is that he's swinging at bad pitches and not swinging at good pitches.

I mean, to equate someone saying, "Batting average is overrated," with someone saying, "Wins are overrated," well... Well done. Well done, indeed.
