Red flag players?

Postby BurlyMan » Thu Feb 24, 2005 6:27 pm

After this whole steroid mess, its interesting to see guys reporting to spring training who have suddenly decided to change their diet/exercise routines ( ;-7 ) to lose weight.

I saw Ivan Rodriguez lost 20 or 30 pounds...anyone else a little concerned about this? I remember last spring around this time, Giambi and Vernon Wells showed up a lot slimmer and both had off years. I know Rodriguez needs to protect his knees, but after all these years of playing, he picks now to make that decision? I don't know, seems a little fishy to me.

Anyone else noticed players reporting this year with big weight losses? Do you guys agree it might be wise to move these guys down our on our cheat sheets a little?

Wells was hurt all season with bad calf. And if you adjust for the games he missed he did not have much of a power outage at all.
