He was playing kind of beefy last year too (no way he was 210) so I wouldn't be too worried about it for this year.

I still have him as my #3. Last year was such a historical season that I refuse to allow any pre season conditioning issues to influence his value.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Probably not. Closest guys I can think of are Kemp and Larry Walker. They were both probably in the mid-220s. I'm guessing there have been quite a few guys in that 210-220 type range who were big time power speed guys (Mondesi, Canseco, Bichette). I doubt Trout finishes Spring Training at anything over 230.

Yeah he could/should trim some in the next month and a half...

Hanley mighta been 230ish a few years ago..

I just think it's discouraging to have yet another significant variable regarding Trout. I know he was amazing last year but I can't help but think you're rolling the dice a bit with him.
Why don't they just get a house that's already painted?

He will lose a bunch of weight in spring training and this will be a moot point.
90% of my posts are from complaining about my team :)

It would take a hulk-like figure to go 50/50, right?

This is pretty much where I'm at. He'll be where he needs to be by the time the season starts.

Ever draft by poundage?

May think about going for the all Heavy Weight Team. There are some bigger boys swinging that lumber!
