    All for it, if he can stay healthy he is a beast.

    If we're going to sign scrubs, we might as well son the ones who have had success in the past.
    He had the talent. It's long gone now. Constant injuries take their toll.

    Geez, just go after players who aren't already injured. There has to be a friggin outfielder out there that can be had who has two good knees. Enough with the trying to catch lightening in a bottle strategy because it ain't working. Mets + Scrap Heap Players= 4th Place

    Grady Sizemore

    Minor league deal let him try to prove he can play. If not nothing lost, probably a good guy for the young guys in the minors to look up to.

    Blake Griffin missed 1 full year 3 years ago to microfracture surgery, yes his 2nd such surgery he then went on to do this.

    This would be a great signing even if he can't start the season. All we need is for him to look good before the trade deadline and then ship him for more prospects. If he shows even a glimpse of his former self there will be some desperate, injury-riddled team that will pull the trigger for him down the stretch.

    Grady Sizemore

    i know we are a few years removed from him being one of the best all around center fielders in baseball...but i cant help but get excited about the prospect of signing him to a minor league deal...it would be a low risk, high reward kind of thing, and in my opinion is something that we should definitely do...if he can be 75 percent of what he used to be he can really be a valuable part of the team going forward...its a no brainer in my opinion, how do you guys feel about him?

    granted, he is coming off micro fracture surgery and its not guaranteed he'll ever play again at the major league level, but i dont see any huge risk involved here

    If he will sign a minor league contract, fine. But I have a feeling that some team will give him a lowball major league deal, and he'd be smart to take it.

    You do know that he will not be ready to play until some time around mid-season, right? Those who are looking to move him at the deadline have the wrong idea.

    On an incentive based deal I like this signing, if he is healthy Sandy can flip him at the trade dead line for a prospect.

    Abreu is washed up. He hasn't been connected to the Mets. One guy on this thread mentioned him, probably with tongue in cheek.

    Sizemore, on the other hand, seems to have generated some interest in the Mets FO. If healthy (a very big IF) on a low risk contract, he could certainly be an asset. But, Ranger18, we wouldn't flip him at the deadline because he won't be ready for action until about then. Besides, at his age, a healthy Grady would be someone to keep.

    I'd bet that Sizemore is more washed up than Abreu.
