295 lbs. is quite a lot, even for a guy who's 6'5" or whatever Frank is.

What's Frank's normal weight, anyway? About 240-250?

I'll worry about it if he's still that big in Spring Training.

whitesox.com lists him as 275

They said in the paper the other day that the reason he has gotten fatter, is he isn't hitting the weights so hard. He is dropping muscle to regain flexiblity. Don't know where it all leads, but hopefully he starts to jog and takes off some of the fat. He has been playing about 270 for most of his career, I believe.

I always liked a fatter Frank anyway. The fatter the better! The more Frank there is, the more I like him. Maybe by the end of the season, he'll be wearing a license plate on his ass. :D:

As long as he can hit like he did in 2000, I don't care if he's 350.

Anyone who expects BIG FRANK to step right in and put up the big numbers is in for a BIG letdown.After a whole year off,with weight problems,arm problems,& head problems,i'd be very surprised if hes' ANY use to the Sox in 2002.Also at his age,can he EVER come back and be the hitter he was just a couple of years ago?I say no.I hope i'm wrong,but i don't believe that i am.At any rate,we'll just have to muddle thru somehow.

I agree that he won't just pick up a bat & start cranking out the MVP numbers instantly. There will be an adjustment period needed for Frank to get his timing back. Hopefully he'll be able to shake off the majority of his rust in the spring. He's a hitter, hitters hit.
