I feel bad for some of those people on the list who aren't that much bigger than what they used to be, just not as fit which obviously happens when you leave professional sports.

Agreed, and some of them didn't look that heavy at all. While I thought the list was funny, some of them were definitely a stretch - David Justice, Shawn Kemp, and a senior citizen Jerry Koosman seemed to be stretches....

Some of those guys are still in good shape (Marino, ect...) and some were never in good shape (Colon), but there were few funny ones.
