I don't think anyone is trying to denigrate him. But the man is overweight, and to suggest he isn't, and that he's only as big as he is due to diet and muscle is absurd. I remember the first time I saw him. It was on MTV when they had a softball challenge. His dad played, and in the later innings, as a kid, he played. I believe he caught the last out, and if not, one of the final outs. he was a large boy then. He's a large man now. And it isn't all muscle. I give him credit, that as big as he is, he is a gifted athlete, as you have said. But eventually, that weight will take it's toll.
