In today’s New York Times, Tyler Kepner muses about CC’s 300-pound frame and brings up other players of “girth.”
To me, one of the great things about baseball is that the players come in all shapes and sizes, which makes them easier to relate to than athletes in football or basketball. The Yankees may be opening the season with a giant on the hill, but then there’s scrappy “little” Brett Gardner in center field and players of every body type in between.
What will happen today in Baltimore? We’ll know in a few hours. I’m hoping my 300-pounder gets it done and then has himself a celebratory dinner.
Oh. Does that mean chicken again for me?
(Sorry for the quick post today, but I’ve got to run. Will do a complete Opening Day recap later!)
