Can Michael Brantley fill Sizemore void?
It's generally dangerous practice for fantasy owners to trust a former star player who has missed so much playing time because of serious injuries in recent seasons, and while there still might be a light at the end of this tunnel, it's going to be tough to trust Sizemore in 2011. Yes, the numbers he was putting up were impressive, though in a small sample size. Sizemore is hitting .282 in 18 games, with six home runs and 16 extra-base hits, and an impressive .974 OPS. Perhaps the more telling number is that he has played in only 18 games, and won't be adding to that number for awhile.
