Pirates have yet to play the Brewers, so many may not have seen Prince Fielder this year.

When you do, I will wager that most have the same reaction that I did:

"Wow, he is fat."

Not just rotund like last year - seriously, morbidly obese. He is eating himself out of the league. I suggest sending him a McDonald's gift certificate. Once his fat ass gets over 320 lbs., he will be worthless.

Isn't he a vegetarian? I swear I heard announcers talking about he switched in the off-season.

I don't know how people can live without a rare, juicy steak.

Amen. Generally, if you can't put a band-aid on it and send it back out to graze, its cooked too much (though, through my medical training I have learned waaaay too much about beef-bourne parasites that I often have to think twice).

I would be astounded if that were true.

Wow. Wait until you see him.

He looks like he has gained 20 lbs. since last season. The news that he is a vegetarian is simply . . . astounding.

I guess that I can't yell at him, "Hey, Fielder, mix in a salad now and then."

Well I am a 5'11" 225 lb vegetarian myself. My wife gives me rice every night and that's helping me get fat. That and no exercising. :lol: I eat rice, pasta, veggie patties basically. I love Fielder. He decided to stop to eating meat for ethical reasons.

Yeah I read that he saw videos of cows or chickens being slaughtered and he was saddened by it. I don't remember why Desmond Howard turned veggie though.. there was one former NBA player too but I forgot who.

Does he want to switch to aluminum to stop the slaughter of innocent trees? :D

You can still be a vegetarian, and be big if you eat the Rain Forest!!!

He is so fat that it is affecting his hitting. A guy who is that fat at age 22 will be obese by age 30, unless he makes some serious changes to his behavior.

I agree. Look at how big his dad was, and he is way bigger yet. Still, I thought he'd have a few more monster years with the HR's before he ate his way out of the league.

Hey, here's an idea: how about we nominate players for an all-overweight team?

A few possibilities, besides Prince Fielder:
Mike Lavalliere
Greg Luzinski
Gates Brown
Ronnie Belliard
John Kruk
Pete Incaviglia
Terry "A Waist Is a Terrible Thing to Mind" Forster

Agreed. I am also surprised at how quickly his weight seems to have affected his play. He is embarrassing to watch on defense. He looks like a sumo wrestler who wandered onto the field and picked up a first baseman's glove.

Geez, I forgot all about Jimmy Anderson.

Also, Mickey Lolich, Kirby Puckett, David Wells, Fernando Valenzuela, Randall Simon, Rich Garces, Mo Vaughn

Aah! Damn those hackers. I remember we did this last year and I spent a good couple of days researching my club. I am very angry now.
