How about when Kevin Mitchell caught a flyball bare handed.

Coincidentally enough, my buddy and I were playing softball the other day and he caught a ball barehanded and we both said Kevin Mitchell.

If it was late in Mitchell's career it wouldn't have made a difference. He was so fat that his hand was probably more padded than a standard glove. He was listed at 210 but was probably closer to 310 toward the end. Talk about a sad waste of talent.

His career ended largely because of a leg injury -- they only walked in one direction: the buffet table.

Trying to think of other post-WWII who essentially ate their way out of baseball (i.e. their sad lack of basic fitness sortened their careers usually via weight-induced stress injuries)

Hopefully we wont have to add Colon to that list, but he is just a fat piece of lard.

Anyone remember when Wade Boggs pitched for the Yankees in 1996 or '97 and struck a batter out. 8-o How embarrassing....
