    Apparently Lance Lynn lost 40 pounds this off season. No longer can he be mixed in with Prince Fielder and David Wells category of "fitness".

    In other news, Lance Lynn looks either lost or on some sort of crazy drug in that picture.

    I'm always a bit skeptical when I hear of an athlete dropping that much weight in an off season, which really is a short amount of time. Yes you're dropping bodyfat, but you also will end up losing a certain amount of muscle mass.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    I agree with that. It's going to be interested to see if it ends up hurting him. That said, I think one of the problems with Lynn last year was he got winded down the stretch and one of the issues was his weight problems.

    Seems like a very short period of time to lose 40 pounds

    Well, he might be in the best shape of his life, other than that darn hole in his leg. And I'd like to express my appreciation for the shadow hiding much of Lackey's face in that picture.
