All Fatty Team

Postby abstractpoet » Sun Apr 23, 2006 1:49 pm

According to an article in today's New York Times, here are some of the more than 30 obese pitchers (with a BMI over 30) playing in the major leagues:

Bobby Jenks (leading the way with a 35.0, weighing in at a wopping 280 pounds)
Bartolo Colon (34.9)
Runelvys Hernandez (33.0)
Sidney Ponson (33.0)
Eric Gagne (33.0)
C.C. Sabathia (33.0)

Wouldn't it be interesting to see how well someone would do if they put together a fantasy pitching staff with all these guys, with Fatolo anchoring and Jenks and Gagne pouring in the saves?

The BMI rating is crap, especially when concerning athletes. Something like 20% of the NBA is labeled "obese" when applied to the BMI.
