Picture of Skinny CC Sabathia and More ST Pics

skinny CC SabathiaWith all the talk of CC Sabathia shedding 25-30 pounds this offseason I thought I would share a picture of him today. He does look a bit slimmer. In fact, Phil Hughes looks about as big as The Big Man.

I also included some other pictures of a few of the new players the Yankees have and a couple of the old.

    Ok, Sabathia is my size now…good job on the weight loss! The bigger story…does Bartolo Colon actually look like he's lost weight as well, or is it just me?? Also, is Soriano gonna be happy in NY? He doesnt look it right now!

  2. Hughes looks about 20 pounds overweight, and whatever amount has produced his distended belly and man-boobs is disgraceful. Really Phil; hit some weights and run for goodness sake. Sabathia, on the other hand, looks terrific compared to years past. Barring several injuries to potential staff members, I have no interest in seeing Bart The Colon and his perennially flabby torso in pinstripes.

    That said, I am thrilled that today was pitchers and catchers, and cannot wait for baseball in the coming weeks. Considering this rather harsh winter, baseball comes at a perfect time.

      Agreed on everything except on the Bartolo part. I have no problem seeing Colon's "flabby torso" in pinstripes as long as he is effective.

      • Lincoln says:

        I'm in agreement with Mindkind. If they are effective I dont care who it is. Even if its Bartolo, Garcia, or lets have a Luis Ayala and Mark Prior in the 'pen, instead of Mitre and Chamberlain. Whoever pitches better gets the spots.

        • Mindkind says:

          "whoever pitches better gets the spots" – Agreed.

          • I agree with this approach as well, which the Yankees have followed in the past. I just have no faith that it will be Colon, and the fact that he is perennially out of shape at this point in his career doesn't help matters. If he performs well; fine. I don't expect it.

          • Mindkind says:

            Yeah I understand your point about Colon. At this stage in his career and he comes in overweight its a not a good sign. I'm not expecting him to make the rotation but if he does while weighing 300 pounds I'll take it. Hopefully Brackman is ready and wins the job.

    I’m a strong supporter of Phelps. I like to see the unsung prospects do well. Everyone is so high on the Killer B’s (as they should be), but Phelps, Mitchell and Noesi arent on the front page of anyone’s news. They are the closest to being in the bigs and they are pretty damn good too! If Garcia and Colon tank, I would like to see a combination of these three and Nova get the job done and show the baseball world that the Yankees have some great pitching standing in the shadows.
