Grady’s Ladies will be on the move to Massachusetts.

The former Tribe superstar is attempting a comeback with the Red Sox under the ultimate “prove it” deal; costing the Red Sox not even a million to see if Grady’s creaky body can give them anything at all. If he can, he could wear out Pesky Pole and be a valuable piece as a fourth outfielder/part-time DH for a team who is primed for a championship repeat.

The fan in me is ecstatic that a guy who was born to play baseball is back in the game, but the homer in me is annoyed that it’s Boston. Bleh.

Sour grapes aside, I’m hoping he makes the team and still has a few web gems that we took for granted. Run ‘em down, Kid!

    I can still see a daredevil dive or a wall climbing gem from this exciting team oriented kid named Grady Sizemore.Good Luck and God Bless ya! P.S. You made the summer of 2007 unforgettable.

    First Travis Hafner and his remarkably-short-prime went to the AL East…

    …now Grady Sizemore and his unbelievably-short-prime followed him.

    Guess I know who’ll be the newest assistant coach at Notre Dame College for 2015.

      Also, while looking at Grady’s baseball ref page…

      …I knew he was consistent, but a 122 OPS+, then a 132 OPS+, then a 122 OPS+ and then back to a 132… that’s… that’s a really good four year run, that’s what that is.

    Grady Sizemore to the Red Sox… I cannot think of any place that I would not have wanted him to succeed and would have still been able to like him. Not that place though. Not that team. I hate the Red Sox and well here goes: I hate Grady Sizemore.

    I think there’s up to $6 mil in incentives, though. I’m a little surprised he got a major league deal and guaranteed money. I expected a minor league with an invite to spring training type deal.

    There are a quite a few people in the Red Sox organization who were with the Tribe during Sizemore’s salad days.This may be a case of wishful reminiscing.
