I haven't checked yet, but it's Broxton (290) and CC (possibly 280?)...I think/guess.

I am pretty sure Broxton is one b/c I went to a Dodgers-Mets game at Shea. He is HUGE. Also, David Wells was starting that game and he looked tiny next to Broxton when they were throwing before the game. They also showed Broxton's weight when he entered the game.

CC is atleast 275 I would think, plus he's 6-7 and he's not exactly skinny.

Other possibilities: Bobby Jenks (isn't he around 275 too?), Adam Dunn (he's 6-6 and pretty big), Bartolo Colon (he's just fat), Howard (he's 260) and Prince I think is about the same as Howard. BBTN said Wickman's weight is listed at 240 but said no way that's even close (and yes I think Kruk made the comment :-b ).

Broxton is 280+ IIRC

I'd also say Broxton. 280 pounds, I think at the least, but more like 290.

I'm going with Broxton and Sabathia too. Big Papi isn't that heavy... he looks bigger than his weight. Colon is about 250.

Some great guesses there guys. They were Sabathia and Broxton (both 290). I was surprised that Broxton is that heavy. 8-o :-b

At least CC is 6'7 with that weight....Broxton is like 6'4

I guess you haven't seen many Dodger games. Let's just say I've been to a few games in a luxury suite about where 1st base is at Dodger Stadium and Broxton looks like The Great Wall of China when you're looking down on him from Outer Space. :-b

Seriously, that's one big boy. :-°
