Default Why is Chris Sale so skinny?

The Wall Street Journal investigates

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...194720956.html

(I'm not joking)

Brian Costa, the WSJ writer who penned the piece, gave an interview with 90.9 WBUR, NPR Boston

Nice to see a Sox player starting to get his much deserved national attention

I think it has something to do with Prince Fielder's fat ass not being on the team.

He's not skinny, he's wirey.

Article also mentions, Thornton has eliminated gluten, high-fructose corn syrup and dairy products from his diet.

It's obviously his life choices that have led to him being skinny.

I'm skinny and I feel fine (though I weigh less than Chris). Nice that our ace has the same frame I do.

Are you 6'6"?

I'm guessing they added a few pounds for the roster card as well.

Dude could definitely use about 20 pounds, maybe he has a worm? Hawk said he drinks four protein shakes a day plus regular meals. If I ate like that, I would be packing on pounds.

I can say being skinny is sometimes just genetics. I am 6'1'' and have a similar build to Chris Sale. I can't gain weight even if I tried, nor can anyone in my family.

One of my best friends is 6'4", 155 and eats almost like Sale. And his family are all built the same way. Some people just have fast metabolisms.

If I look at food I pack it on. Even more so when I actually eat it.

It's not necessarily genetic.

I'm 6'2" and weigh 140 pounds. Metabolism is a strange beast.

He has a high caloric maintenance. He, and you, simply need to eat more.
