Grady Sizemore needs to own up to his mistake

Last night we received a letter from CAA Sports, the Law Firm who represents Grady Sizemore. Before we dig into a few thoughts on the matter you’ll notice that our post about Sizemore has been removed. Sizemore lept into the public eye over this past weekend when some photos of him leaked out.

Basically, we were told that the photo we posted on our website (and we chose a ‘safe for work’ version) was stolen property of Mr. Sizemore’s and if we left the photo up we’d be subject to legal action.

And now we’ve got an opinion on it, and a few words for a Grady Sizemore, who we used to be a big fan of.

Let’s brush off the old Internet 101 book and remember that the world operates by the WWW nowadays. Anything you say, produce, or write could technically end up on the internet. You have to be careful and guarded. It’s not pretty but the reality is that when you produce material, there is always that chance that it could end up on the interwebs and in the eyes of someone you don’t want seeing it. When you’re famous, those chances get magnified by a large amount. Aparently, Grady Sizemore hasn’t figured out this part of being a professional.

You might remember back to when Josh Hamilton relapsed. This was not a proud moment for Hamilton. Many people out there were going to then say that Hamilton was a fraud and a fake. There were photos of him (a married man) with other women. This was not long after the time that he was featured on channels like E! with his wife, talking about their marriage and faith to the entire country watching.

What did Hamilton do? He apologized and owned up to his mistake like a man. He didn’t accuse bloggers and other media outlets of ‘stealing his personal property’. He moved on from the situation after acknowledging it because he understood that it was his own actions that caused the ripple effect and he understood that the definition of him as a professional depended upon what he did immediately following that mistake.

Fast forward to Grady Sizemore. Now it seems to us that Sizemore wants to pretend like the incident never happened. He hasn’t spoke on it, and now he’s getting lawyers like Terrence Price to do his dirty work for him. To be frank, that’s a chicken-shit way to go through life; especially when you are a pro athlete and you have millions of kids that look up to you. That brings up another subject in itself that we won’t touch. But as we said in our original post that has been removed–Grady, what are you doing? You simply must be smarter then this.

As the Cleveland Plain Dealer points out, Sizemore only hurt himself. When we sat back and took a look at the 15 or so photos that Sizemore snapped of himself, we couldn’t find a reason of why he’d do something like that. He’s not a 20 year old kid. He’s a man, and as people around the same age, we just don’t do shit like that. If we were one of the best centerfielders in baseball, we definitely wouldn’t be setting ourself up for a nightmare so voluntarily. If we were a ‘star’ player that hit .248 last season, we’d be spending that time in the batting cage working on pitch recognition; not seeing which coffee mug would cover our genitals the best and sending them off to women (no matter how much they seemed to mean to us at the moment).

This isn’t the first time that a pro athlete has been exploited and it won’t be the last. You learn a lot about the type of person you’re dealing with when a situation like this happens. Sizemore only confirms what the pictures initially said; he’s an immature young man and has no business in true ‘superstar’ territory no matter on how he improves on his numbers in the seasons to follow.

You don’t see Lebron James doing stuff like this do you? Micheal Jordan never did it. Derek Jeter has been with plenty of girls and things probably haven’t always ended well. But he’s not ending up with photos on various internet sites. These guys understand what comes with the territory of being men and professionals. Are they perfect, no. But we’d argue that they’d also handle things after the fact a lot more like a man then Grady has.

One might argue that Sizemore is a private person for reasoning why he has acted in this manner. We’d agree with that. We have followed his career closely and he hasn’t been a guy known to do an abundance of interviews. So why in the hell is he taking photos of himself with his pants down in a mirror and sending them off to women? It simply doesn’t make sense.

So we removed the original photo. Not because we’re afraid of a lawsuit or we don’t have a team of lawyers to fight Sizemore’s case (which he would most assuredly lose). There’s nothing to sue us for anyways. We don’t make enough money at this time to be worth Sizemore’s time. We took it down because it’s a lot more fun to make an example of Grady and rip him here. He didn’t lose the respect of a damn good fan here when he took the photos. We all fuck up and make mistakes. He lost the respect of someone who loves watching him run down fly balls on the warning track because he isn’t a man. He’s a coward.

  1. First, Hamilton didn't relapse. I mean, what he was caught doing last year was NOTHING compared to what he'd done before.Second, Sizemore absolutely has a copyright over those photos. However, your posting them should be protected by the First Amendment, if it isn't already. Press freedom trumps copyright any day in my book. (You may note that Hamilton didn't have any copyright over the photos of him because he didn't take them.)Third, what Sizemore did is absolutely nothing to get hot about. If he wants to take some revealing photos of himself, big GD deal.Fourth, if you want to stop being someone's fan, stop being a fan of loser attorneys who go around trying to cow everyone by throwing some law in their face. F them.

  3. If you only new what a lying,cheating piece of shit he really is.He cheated on binger the whole time they were together in ohio and arizona.Even passed girls back and forth with his own brother.Hes a lame excuse for a man and his career is done.Any dude tellin his girl hes goin to bed at 9pm to go sneak out and get random pussy is just that ,a pussy.Ans probably a walking std.Hes been caught,i cant believe she would show her face at a game of his..Hes a loser and always will be.respect yourself binger cause he definitly does not.

  4. No i use to date him.Sounds exactly right.I know he cheated on me and brittany for a fact.He's 28 goin on 14 and will probably never grow up.He always was telling me he was so tired at around 8pm if i wasnt with him.Seems in not the only one that does not like him anymore.

  5. I don't know, I could see him maybe sharing chicks with his brother Corey. That seems like something an athlete would do. Hard for me to speak. I've never been a professional baseball player but I do know how women throw themselves at athletes and tolerate a lot of bullshit because of the fame and the money. If I had to bet, I would say that he has cheated, lied, gotten random pussy, and given his brother a turn on girls he was finished up with. That said, I hope he starts hittin again. I thought he was going to be a great one in this game. He's disappointing the shit out of me. No more excuses.

  6. Yes it definitely appears that he has fallen off of that throne that many put him on. For the girl that he cheated on consider yourself lucky to be rid of that louse. And for Binger, hope she gets a clue and dumps this loser – have some self respect!!!!

  7. Whatever people. Its all speculation and rumors. Don't believe everything you read in the "enquirer" here and all over the net. The guy is slumping, give him a break and remember what he is capable of. As far as his personal life…it's his personal life, none of my business.

  8. He is washed up already. Cleveland would be lucky to get a bag of balls (no pun intended) for him. And as far as his personal life goes, if he puts himself out there like he does then expect to be judged

  9. Me and my man saw him out with a pretty girl the other night.She looked mad at him,We think he was just drunk enough he didnt care and I now realize we were just drunk enough to not get a picture for all of you.lol

  10. Yea,what state was that?BRITTNY would like to know.She really is still checking up on the tool.Get over it bitch,he's fuckin my friend the last couple months and was with 2 others i know while he was seeing you.I cant stand him.Conceited jocks are the biggest assholes.

  11. thats funny ……. all this shit online is bullshit… i happen to know him and he is surprisingly VERY loyal.. some1 who has everything going 4 him lik that,, u would think the opposite but hes very loyal to his girlfriend. he rarely goes out and if he does its with her,, hes actually a good guy and not the guy yall r makin him out to be,, now as far as her loyalty i couldnt tell u bc i dont really know.

  12. Everything going for him- please!!! Are you kidding me! This guy is barely hitting over .200. They should ship him to the minors. Or better yet, his punishment should be to stay with his crappy team. As for his loyalty, yeah right – as they say once a cheat, always a cheat. Actually he sounds like a moron for hanging around with this piece of garbage. And she deserves no respect because she has no self respect in putting up with this guy.

  13. She is not loyal,she cheated on her x with grady and cheated on grady with her x.She lives in Hollywood and is not even with grady.As far as grady being loyal,please,he fucks anything that walks on a couple drinks.He passed girls with his own brother it seemed right around the time she was with him and heard he had a threesome with one of the yankees and a baseball groupie.Look back at different blogs.He was doin different girls in ohio and arizona while spreading the love to ms. binger.His exgirlfriend even posted that he was cheating liar.And use to play the sleepy role on the phone to go sneak out and pick up on girls.As far as his playing goes,i see less and less sizeless jerseys at the stadium.Trade the weirdo already.

  14. we should hope that the 2 of them stay together in an exclusive relationship in order to spare the rest society from their STDs (Grady was sporting a nice sore on his mouth last summer)

  15. I personally know grady and have ran plenty of P with him in the on and off season.He has told me many times honestly settling is not in his cards.He enjoys all the different P he gets from his new found fame.I personally think Brittany is out for just that and has brought him down in everyway.Grady himself has mentioned her motives and was pissed about all the different pictures from her own camera that suddenly poped up online days after the saw eachother.I benn sitting right there with him when he has told his girlfriendS he was tired and had to get up early to train.Then we would go rage.Once the naked pictures came out he was not wanting to be seen anywhere and was embarresed and pissed off.He's not the same guy i knew before this wonderful farm girl came into his life.

  16. Im pretty sure he's done with her.He been seen around town with girl who works at the stadium.I dont think he's that desperate.She's a mess,but then again arent most playmates.

  17. She has no real friends,she keeps the company of fame seeking whores and cheated on her exbf she lived with for 4 years.CLASS??? NO..Hef and the stds floating around that pool are anything but classy.Playboy and his broke ass who has less gfs now cause he cant afford them anymore are the farthest thing from classy.Im afraid pb has ruined another perfectly normal farmgirl.Seeking attention so bad she will continue to go back to a cheating liar like grady again and again when she obviously knows what he does….classy…lol / thats a good one!!!

  18. Sorry to have hit a nerve there. Why so angry with Grady – sounds like he is down and out enough with his season ending injury and his creepy pictures on the internet forever. And it sounds like they are perfect for each other – 2 trainwrecks.
