It wasn’t too long ago that Cleveland Indians outfielder Grady Sizemore was one of the hottest young stars in baseball. Between 2005 and 2008, he had all the makings of a classic 5-tool player, posting four 100-run seasons and showing increasing promise in home runs, RBI and stolen bases. But in 2009, he started having issues with his elbow and soon after he had problems with his left knee. In 2011, he made his comeback and then hit the DL a few times with a sports hernia and some right knee problems, and it seemed like the Indians were never going to be able to trade him to a contender for a bunch of prospects that they could also later trade.
But none of that matters now because Sizemore is in love and he’s marrying his longtime, on-and-off-again girlfriend, Brittany Binger, who you might know better as Playboy’s Miss June 2007. Sizemore and the 24-year old model have had a fun relationship over the last few years, highlighted by Binger’s infamous cell phone “hacking” which led to some risqué bulge photos (semi-NSFW and something for the ladies) of Sizemore winding up online.
I know I definitely speak for our resident Indians homer, Brandon, when I say that we wish Sizemore nothing but happiness and hope that he can return to form next season during his 1-year, $5 million deal so the Indians will trade him to the St. Louis Cardinals for another World Series run. L’chaim!
