Grady Sizemore...Next Member of the 40-40 Club?

Posted on: August 6, 2008 10:31 am
Already this season, Grady Sizemore has 27 home runs, and 27 stolen bases, for second and fifth on the American League leaderboard. He is on pace for a 39-39 season, but who says you can't exceed your expectations? Only four people have previously made the cut for this prestigious "club", including Barry Bonds (1996, 42 HR- 40 SB), Jose Canseco (1988, 42-40), Alfonso Soriano (2006, 46-41), and Alex Rodriguez (1998, 42-46).

My question to you is this: can Grady join the greats in the 40-40 club, or will he fall short?

Comments/discussion is appreciated.

Grady Sizemore...Next Member of the 40-40 Club?

Sizemore's having a great year. Clearly he's going to go 30-30. And he's on pace for 40-40, but maintaining that pace all the way through the season when the legs start to get a little tired and the body aches a little more while the weather's getting cooler is a tough task.

I wish him well in chasing it.
