I know Grady Sizemore hasn't been even replacement level since 09, the sample on Sizemore is so much smaller, and also the lefthander is the most important member of the platoon. This would be an interesting way of spelling both of these (maybe still) uniquely talented players while also maximizing results. If we miss out on Swisher and Bourn this is a very interesting consideration, at least to me.

Thoughts?
