Who shrunk this spring? (No more Juice?)

Rotoworld is reporting the Pudge Rodriguez came into camp this week at 193 lbs after playing last year at 215. That along with Canseco's allegations is a little concerning.

Funny you should mention Marcus Giles , I have often heard of him as being one the ones on juice. I will definitely stay away from him on draft day.

I posted this in another thread, bit it belongs here as well.

I read today actually that Haffner discovered something amazing this off-season, vegtables, and that his altered diet had him losing weight. Here is the blurb from today's Cleveland Plain Dealer.

"Pass the veggies:

Hafner discovered something unusual last season - vegetables.

"In spring training, I talked to our nutritionist," said Hafner, "and I started eating better"

The conversation opened his eyes.

"I used to be on what I called my caveman diet," said Hafner. "I'd go to all those steak buffets. But when I started eating vegetables, I lost about five or 10 pounds. I'd order a side of or broccli and my friends would go crazy"


I wonder if they sit around thinking this stuff up. " Hey Haff, here is a good one, tell the media you discovered you like veggies now and that you lost weight because of it. Or maybe tell them you changed your workout but are really only down 5 pounds, but that didn't work to well with Giambi last year"

I was suspect of Haffner before I read this news today. I hate being cynical like that but the guy looked like Road Warrior Hawk for petes sake.

Talk to anyone that has used roids and they will tell you most testing is a joke, and that only an idiot would get caught. They do test in the minors, but from what I am told that means nothing.

I just asked about Hafner in another thread last night. Thanks for the dish. I'd say this boosts Morneau over Hafner for those comparing. But, is Morneau just a corn fed country boy or are there questions about him?

Updating the list:

*Eric Gagne - Chi-town Sports talk
*Brett Boone - we all knew he was on the way down from a few years ago
*Jeff Bagwell - we all knew he was on the way down from a few years ago
*Mike Piazza - Paul White Fantasy Baseball seminar
*Marcus Giles - Paul White Fantasy Baseball seminar
*Pudge Rodriguez - rotoworld and photo on the Tigers web page
*Sammy Sosa - No source, but suggestions that he is even smaller?
*Travis Haffner - He started eating "veggies" and shrunk - suspect
