Why do people always say this with players in spring? Are we forgetting the dude 6'4 225? That is the definition of a workhorse pitcher body.
Are fans expecting players to be Calvin Klein Underwear Models?
"I remember during a game Keith Hernandez said he used to purposely come into camp overweight. It would allow his body to burn off the excess fat instead of muscle during Spring Training and work outs which would allow him to keep his energy up instead of being fatigued and wearing out later in the season."
This is the kind of common sense the trainers need to know, if they don't know already! (I am sure this must be common knowledge in baseball?)
"Baxter is hot!!!!!!!! "
If he's hot, all he needs to do is flap those ears. Have you seen those ears!? Nothing against Mike, but Clark Gable at least put tape behind his. Do something bout those ears, Mike. Please. :-)
"who cares about the ears"
Apparently, not you. LOL
