    Sizemore Withdraws from WBC

    Sizemore won't play for U.S. in WBC

    GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Cleveland Indians All-Star center fielder Grady Sizemore will not play for Team USA in the World Baseball Classic because of soreness in his left groin.

    The injury has been bothering Sizemore for about a week and he has been considering not playing in the WBC. He had been scheduled to leave training camp on Sunday and join the American team in Clearwater, Fla.

    Sizemore played in the Indians' first two Cactus League games, but the leg bothered him slightly while stealing a base on Thursday. He told Indians manager Eric Wedge Friday morning that he thought it was best he remain in camp. The Indians then informed representatives of the U.S. team.

    Not good news. 'Sounds' like no biggie.....but we've seen how leg muscle issues can linger with players before. Hopefully they let him rest fully for a few days and don't rush anything.

    Let Barfield, Brantley, and crowe play CF for a lil while to see how they look.

    barfield looked pretty good out in CF in the game against the Dbax.. hopefully that will translate into more opportunities for him..

    Heard a couple of quotes from Grady where he didn't seem too worried. I'm glad he isn't, but hope he doesn't mind if the rest of us s**t ourselves. That would be a huge hole to dig out of. WBC is nothing to the USA anyhow. All it is is a disaster waiting to happen for all 30 teams.
