Is it me, or does Konerko look smaller and less stocky than he has in years past? No, I'm not implying a Giambi type of issue. I was just curious if anyone else is noticing the same thing or if I'm just crazy.

Looks the same to me, you must have a different tv.

I think he looks thinner in the face, but maybe he lost weight in Arizona, or the offseason.

He's had the thinner look for a few years, not just his hair.

Maybe because when you see him stand next to Thome, he looks like Jerry Krause standing next to Michael Jordan. But, even in seeing the video of the ring ceremony on whitesox.com, he still look like he's lost a lot of weight. Maybe the newborn had him running all over the house. I know it did for me.

I don't see a difference in Konerko.

But Credes' face and neck look ALOT broader to me.

And I wish Joe would realize his attempt to imulate Cotts' glorious mane aren't working for him!

That being said, I won't fixate on his grooming habits once he hits a few runners home.

Agreed! IMHO, Crede and AJ need to cut their hair. And yes, I though Paulie looked slimmer as well

At least he didn't lose his supreme buttocks.

Unless their haircuts directly impact their offensive and defensive outputs, leave 'em be. What are we, the Yankees??

Hell, Crede played better looking like a member of Creed.

Paulie does look a little thinner, but in a good way. He seems to have lost some of that "baby fat" around his midsection.

Paulie went on an offseason conditioning program to lose a few pounds so that he can pursue his goal of swiping 30 bags in 2006.

That reminds me that, under the shoota method, Crede was responsible for Ozuna's outs yesterday because Crede should have been playing and had the flu.

I think AJ's new hairdo will enable him to piss more people off, so I like it

I noticed that Garcia also had the shaggy hair going too. lol. plus he had blond streaks in it. lol. not saying there's anything wrong with that, just thought it was odd.

I have been to all 3 home games so far this season and there is absolutely no doubt that Konerko has lost weight. He actually looks healthier but he is at least 10 pounds lighter.

I would think that the guys watching on TV would have a better perspective.

Perhaps. But he is certainly smaller. Many people in the stands were commenting on this, so I'm not just going crazy:D: .

I also agree with that. I just noticed that yesterday when he was at the plate.

He looks exactly like he did in 2004... unfortunately. :redneck

Seriously though, he doesn't look any smaller to me as of late. He didn't at Spring Training either. Could be the camaras.

I agree - he does look trimmed down. I just think he's in better shape this year.

He slimmed down last year, too. I think he was at his heaviest around 2002 or so.

Running after a baby will do that to you.

Crede's long hair and chin beard make him not look like a 12 year old. I understand why he has it.

In regards to PK, I also think he looks smaller. However, that could directly correlate to Jim Thome hitting right before him.

I thought Paulie looked a little thinner too, but I didn't say anything to any-
body.

I sort of like the Bohemian look on our players - probably because it is so un-Yankee - Paulie, Crede, Cotts, Dustin, Ozzie, et al. - I say let em all look like we recruited them from the coffeeshop!

Paulie was never really a big guy anyways, maybe the face is a bit thinner, but that is it.

Actually his bald spot looked way worse back in the day...


He looks to be a little more toned up and in better shape to me. Credit Allen Thomas maybe? Bye the way did anyone see the interview with AT in the spring? They (Hawk and Deej) were asking him about who was in the best shape. He said without a doubt Cotts is the most buff. He also said it was Widger who was the most difficult to get in the gym everyday.
