Sizing Up Grady

Cleveland theater
A multimillion-dollar contract is nice. So is praise from your peers and the fans. But nothing beats your very own bobblehead. At tonight's game against the Texas Rangers, the Indians fete Grady Sizemore by giving away tiny, noggin-nodding replicas of the centerfielder. "I'm sure it looks nothing like me," he laughs. Sizemore recently signed a $23.4 million, six-year contract — the most money ever given to a player with less than two years in the major leagues. No surprise that the Indians have wasted little time filling their gift shops with Grady-related items — like the 36-inch bobblehead going for $275. "I have no idea who would want a three-foot bobblehead of me," he says. "Personally, I think that one is a little bit overboard."
