Well, I was equally wrong about Ruth as was the guy that claimed David Ortiz hit 350 or so home runs in 5 years.
Like I said, Puckett and Gwynn weren't fat until late in their careers and Howard wasn't fat.
There's precedent for fat players to do well into the 30's, but it's rare. I'm glad the Sox don't owe $96m to a guy that's 300+.
The Tigers have a small window because they're old and fat and Verlander's dominance has a shelf life. I heard he got rocked again last night.
