Too bad they didn't put out this list a few years back. Rich Garces would have been (burger) king by a landslide.

Yeah, the listed weight for almost all major leaguers seems like garbage with skinny and small guys getting a few pounds and inches added to their height and fat guys getting knocked down a bunch of pounds.

Kazmir is listed as 6'0"... I think he's about 5'8" or 5'9". I even recall him saying that. :-?

Jimmy Anderson once ate the Pirates entire draft class. That guy was huge, although I don't think he plays anymore.

BMI is an easy indicator and it's good enough for like 95% of the population. But pro athletes are statistical outliers when it comes to the human body, they have too much muscle mass to make BMI useless. But for most of us (yeah, including almost all of you reading this :-b ) it's not completely crap.

But yeah, the listed heights and weights are often suspect too !+)

dude, you are starting to creep me out....and not in a good way either.


You're not a true fatty without a good nickname. "El Guapo" The Round Mound of Sit Down, Rich Garces and Big Daddy Rick Reuschel make my all time fat team.

No current fatty team would be complete without Matt Lecroy. And how about honorable mention for Kevin Mench's head? :-D
