Sizemore Swinging Hot Bat

Sizemore takes Sabathia deep at Yankee Stadium
I know it's early, but I just wanted to mention how thrilled I am by Grady Sizemore's hot start. Hitting a home run on Opening Day, his Red Sox debut and first big league game since 2011, was storybook. Though Boston lost that day, it was a huge victory for Sizemore.

In the last ten days, he's done everything he can to prove that swing wasn't a fluke. He had back-to-back multi-hit games versus Texas earlier in the week, then last night slugged a go-ahead three-run bomb off CC Sabathia. Today John Farrell rewarded him with a day off as the Sox try to ease him back into a substantial role (on a semi-related note, Boston lost).

Sizemore's batting .333/.394/.600 on the young season with two home runs, two doubles and a stolen base. There's no way he can keep hitting at that pace, of course, but it will be fun watching him try.
