Reds not getting Sizemore
ESPN 1450 in Bowling Green, Ky., had Reds general manager Walt Jocketty on as a guest today. When asked about it, Jocketty said that the Reds are not going to sign free agent outfielder Grady Sizemore. The team had been talking to Sizemore since last month to be potential center fielder/leadoff insurance behind Billy Hamilton.
Walt Jocketty was just asked about signing Grady Sizemore: "Not gonna happen… Things have changed."

According to a source, it appears that Sizemore is going to sign with a different club. That team, at the moment, remains unknown.
More to come when I have it.
UPDATE: According to Rob Bradford of WEEI radio in Boston, Sizemore signed a one year big league contract with the Red Sox. It’s worth $750,000 in base salary but can reach $6 million with incentives.
