The condor has landed

Well, he's slightly larger than an eagle...although, he looks much thinner than I remember him from October. I am imagining things?



Let the hatin' begin.

I've seen him listed at 311 (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/11/sports/baseball/11yankees.html?ref=sports). and it was stated like there was no doubt about it. He is really tall too. I really hope he's great for three years and opts out and goes home to Cali. 2014 Sabathia scares me.

Loose fabric, my friend.

Shaquille O'Neal is 7' something and well over 350 and no one talks about his ability to run up and down the court. At least not when he was the same age as Sabathia is now.

He's a big guy and big guys can handle weight.

Plus, he'll make a great pinchhitter with the short porch in right.

I'm with tadthebad...XXXXL clothes that are also dark in color will do that to a fella.

I know guys, but look at the pictures here and at the linked page and tell me he doesn't look thinner than the widebody that finished the year in Cleveland.

And I am all for optics. I'm trying to hide a few extra pounds so I get the loose/dark ideas!

Jason - aren't we all?

AND, you are now due for some serious hatin' from our mid-west brethren...he finished up last season in Milwaukee. Maybe he just needed to escape the land of bratwurst, sausage and cheese.

You said it, you hate-baiter, not me!

I love the MidWest. It looks so nice and flat when I'm 36k feet over it heading West.

I keed, I keed. Sort of.

Ron Rollins said...

You know why the midwest is so great?

It keeps the people on either coast from getting together and breeding.

Yeah, Great Plains.

Jason @ IIATMS said...

Yeah Ron, keep that inbreeding to yourselves.
