Shrunk Players List

Postby Yikes » Tue Feb 24, 2004 10:41 pm

I'm trying to put together a list of players I've read about that have reported a lot of weight-loss from the offseason or looks a lot 'smaller' coming into camp. Not trying to imply anything in this topic but just want to have them as question marks on my draft list.
:-D

Phil Nevin - might not be a bad thing
Jason Giambi
Larry Walker - might not be a bad thing
Vernon Wells


Any others?

I read that Wade Miller lost some weight.

Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

Sorry for not clarifying this, I meant let's put together a list of shunk hitters.

Pitchers that report to camp smaller doesn't concern me, but shunk hitter do.

Yeah, why is that. If this is about steroids, pitchers take them too, and not being on them could affect their performances.

I wish the Major Leagues published hatg sizes each year. That would be interesting to see.

I remember during the World Series they mentioned that Dontrelle Willis wore a size 8 hat! But I don't think anything is up there, kid's just got a big head.

I believe it has something to do with the fact that pitchers actually hurt their careers by using steroids, in general. Whereas those hitters who take them do so because they need the power to continuously hit homers. Pitchers just tear up their arms using them, to my knowledge. So if I was drafting players, and I knew which ones took steroids, I'd draft the hitters and let someone else draft the pitchers.
