12:21 AM ET 01.12 | Grady Sizemore isn't a Yankee, but he has recently been connected to the club. His agent, Joe Urbon, said he'll suspend talks with interested clubs until Sizemore is closer to 100 percent after surgery to repair a microfracture in his knee. The left-handed center fielder was a fixture in the Cleveland Indians organization and was one of baseball's best players since 2005 before a rash of injuries slowed his production. As with many athletes, injuries can foil a promising career and that's exactly what happened with Sizemore. Yankees will undoubtedly deal with injuries of their own, so does a healthy Sizemore warrant a flyer come midseason?

The hits just keep on coming...

He can join a roster of full of players who were "one of baseball's best players since 2005"...

Yanks Go Yard, Can you please do a story tomorrow about Brandon Webb being a good fit in the Yanks rotation?

I think Ricky Ledee would be a better fit for the Yankees right now than Sizemore. Maybe the Yankees should sign Tom Sizemore.

An injury-prone team hoping to land Grady Sizemore? Great.

I guess it depends on if the Yankees have any room left on the DL?

More deceptive FN headlines.

Read the entire article:

He???s a replacement level player at this point in his career and doesn???t warrant much of a look from the Yankees because of it. Unless the team is really hurting for outfield help, they should not take a flyer on him. 1. It???s a waste of a 40-man spot, 2. He hasn???t proven he???s overcome the injury bug, 3. The Yankees have options internally who can presumably offer the same type of production. Sorry Sizemore, you???re going to have to look elsewhere for work.

Go and try to play with the Tribe if you have anything left, because they have been loyal to you and now it is your turn to return the favor to them.

Yes, without question, him and ARod only need two more partners for the Players annual on the DL List Tournament!!!!!!! Keep him in Cleveland!
