Yes. Anybody have a picture of him with his shirt off? Really I don't want to denigrate him. He's a gifted athlete. He's one of those heavy set people who are nevertheless athletic.

That's not muscle you see.

That's got to be one of the most ridiculous statements I've read here, even for you munch!

The stats part of this thread bores me. The part discussing how fat Prince and Miggy are is great reading. Did Munch say Cabrera isn't fat? LOL. Dude, he's not fat, he's obese.

In my book, Crede has 2 less home runs than his statistics show, 4 less RBI, and one less walk (the one where he pinch hit for Uribe after coming in with a 3-0 count and taking one pitch).

Obviously the Tigers are better than us, but the addition of VMart makes the fattest team in the history if sports even fatter. Just wait until Hunter's old ass starts eating either these guys. I have a feeling this season is going to be fun.

So, joking on Fielder aside, Cabrera is NOT fat anymore. He WAS fat before last season, but actually got himself into pretty decent shape knowing he was going to play 3B. Here's a pic of him before last season. http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/20...e-of-his-life/

I don't see how anyone could look at that picture and consider him obese.

I don't think that pic is helping your cause.

Between a 3.5 die roll, and Fielder not being fat, this thread rules.

One point on Keppinger. He has played twice as many games at 2nd in his career than at 3rd. He even has played more shortstop than 3rd. The only reason he played 3rd last year in Tampa was because Longoria was out so long with an injury. So if Morel and Keppinger hit in the spring and Beckham doesn't, it may force Robin to make some decisions offensively.

It's always nice to have options.

Just go by a year old picture after he spent the winter with a trainer. You might want to google,some playoff pictures and look at the overhang around the waist.

Man, I wish I was home. There's nothing I want more than for this thread to turn into a Fat Tigers Pic Thread.
