It’s A Love Hate Thing

It’s been a great last few days for my Tampa Bay Rays. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am for the future, because after giving him a few days in the low minors to get his swing right, the Rays have promoted former MVP candidate and three-time All Star Grady Sizemore to the active roster. It’s not hard to see why I love it….

– I love the fact that the Rays offense had a spot available for a hitter who hadn’t homered all season.

– I love the fact that Sizemore has hit 20 HRs combined in the last 5 seasons. The Rays really needed 20 HR pop in their lineup.

– I love the fact that Sizemore instantly comes into the Rays lineup and is batting second. It’s a very important spot in the lineup.

– I love the fact that he wasn’t good enough for the worst in baseball Phillies. We got him at a discount.

– I love the fact that he’s still available in our fantasy baseball league. The second I can open up a roster spot….

– I love the fact that Sizemore hasn’t hit better than .280 since 2006. Stats are overrated.

– I love the fact that Sizemore hasn’t played more than 115 games since 2008. It will keep him fresh for our playoff drive.

-I love the fact that Sports Illustrated was smart enough to name Sizemore baseball’s next big thing…. In 2007.

– I love the fact that signing a superstar like Sizemore will send attendance through the roof.

– I love the fact that I’m struggling to keep my excitement from running wild. Like Sizemore and his 10 SBs combined in the last 5 years.

But most of all, I love the fact that one of my favorite players in MLB history is now part of my favorite team.

Let the show begin.
