Actually, when you're over 6 feet tall, 10 pounds isn't really a lot of weight. I'm 6'3" and I gained 25 pounds in one winter and lost body fat by lifting twice per day and eating protein shakes. Of course, I was in my twenties, but Homer is still in that range also. Your other point is valid though...I used to lose 5 pounds (sometimes more) of water at every workout. Hopefully, Homer put a lot of that weight in his legs. This may be the year Chapman begins his journey to becoming a dominant closer, but it may be the year Homer completes his journey.
