You can just tell by looking at footage of him when he was in the WS his rookie year and seeing him now.
Miguel Cabrera was never up to 300 are you crazy? Not even 280. I dont care about your "i can tell by looking at him", that means absolultley nothing. Hes listed as 210, and probably only managed to get up to around 245-250 tops.
Yeah I doubt he was even 245... Fat weighs less than muscle and Miggy was not muscles...
Actually he was in spring training. He was up to about 280. I saw it in numerous newspaper articles right around May and June which was when he finally got down to his normal playing weight around 250. I would provide a link but its kinda hard to find a specific newspaper article when I'm not sure which ones I read it in. In those articles he talked about
If you think he weighs anything near his listed weight of 210, you are not very good at judging weight. That listed weight is probably 3 years old as I doubt they weigh in every year to update it like a boxer would.
Have you ever seen Bobby Jenks? He's "listed" at 280 and he does look a lot fatter than him but thats partially due to him having a fat face.
Look at Broxton with his 288 listed weight. Are you saying Miguel in spring training was significantly thinner?
