Last night Victor Martinez kicked a bucket of sunflower seeds in the dugout and his foot got stuck. It became a comedy show in the dugout and guys were laughing. Fine. have some fun. But, what the beatwriters and reporters did not see was the laughing and smiling from the face of Grady Sizemore after the final out of the 8th inning when he and Francisco were running back to the dugout.
What is so funny Grady? You havin fun losin? Sizemore should be sprinting his 254 hitting ass into the dugout with no grin at all. This team lacks leadership on the field and if a guy like Trot Nixon was still around, I doubt he would have allowed for "the greatest player of our generation" to be hamming it up down 7-2 to a rival. Travis Hafner has taken some heat and well he should, but, it is time for the "great" Grady Sizemore to get his act together. His numbers have also been in decline the last couple of years and his weak ground outs to the right side and constant K's cannot keep happening. "Krady" has 38 strikeouts to his 43 hits! That is pathetic.
It is not funny. This division sucks. Get your act together and go win a ballgame or two. Shin Soo-Choo is hitting 353 at Buffalo and will be in the state of Ohio this weekend playing against Columbus. Hopefully soon he will be making the trek up I-71.
