Well, since he is also playing in the WBC, he should come in *reasonable* shape this season.

he may be in baseball shape, but that's not where Fred was going with his post

Exactly, dude Is still so round. He's so damn lucky he's young and it won't catch up to him but he won't be young forever. I was hoping with the success he had in the post season last year he would come in looking like he did in 2011. But I'm not surprise bein young that he thinks that since he dominated and won ws MVP he can come in overweight and play at a high level. Just imagine if he was in shape with the talent he has. Bochy already stated he's not happy with his weight, I would figure having millions and being able to hire the best trainers in the world would make it easier than the average person but guess not. By the way I knew him playing in Venezuela was a bad idea only because he would be in heaven eating his countries' dishes. All I'm saying is have some pride, the organization that's paying you millions wants you in shape and sees you as a vital asset



He may be my favorite player, but it is frustrating as hell to know he could be such a dominant player if he got his s**t straight but instead he settles for being who he is, which is still pretty good, but not maximizing your potential is utterly stupid. It does bug me.

I won't complain as long as he plays at a high level. It's worked out pretty well for Prince for the last six years. If we're talking longevity, then yeah he needs to buck the f**k up.

it doesn't bother you that Pablo could have more speed around the bases? He's already such agile guy, speed around the basis would be a major plus. On top of that, the added weight plays a big factor on his defense, you can't be a Prince Fielder playing 3rd base.

No, I'd rather he hit more homeruns than be able to go first to third on a deep single. Speed hasn't ever been my concern with him. Also, when he was his fattest in 2010 he was still an above-average defender according to UZR.

ok, it doesn't bother you that he settles for being an above-average defender when he could be much better if he got in shape? Point is Pablo is settling for what he is right now instead of being the best he can be, and THAT is frustrating as f**k
Boss pic indeed ^. What's up with that gardening glove though...

the glove is to keep the trophy shiny and not leave fingerprints

He's never going to be a Zim or Beltre so no, it doesn't bother me. As long as he stays above-average defensively I don't know how that's settling.

there's another umbrella statement. You're seriously telling me a 26 year old cannot get better defensively? He doesn't need to be Zim/Beltre, but the closer he could come to that the better it would be for this team. As someone already pointed out he can't get away with this forever, and when he can't no longer play 3B at this weight then what? There seems to be a pretty big logjam at 1B.

I agree. There is no reason why Panda should be as fat as he is. Get in shape dammit!

As long as he produces this year, his weight doesn't concern me. However, if he wants that fat contract, then he needs to lose weight.


ugh, i wish baseball contracts weren't guaranteed.

Sounds like the perfect kind of deal to give him.
Brandon Belt looks like Ruxin from the league.

It's not an umbrella statement. He's a top 10 3B defensively. My point is this: at his fattest he was just as good defensively according to advanced metrics. He hasn't NOT made plays because of his weight. If that starts happening then that's when I'll have a problem.

Dude kills arguably the best pitcher in baseball in the World Series, wins the MVP and were still concerned with his weight?

If it starts affecting his play, then feel free to complain. Or if he gets fatter and we give him a huge contract, also feel free. Until then it's just pure speculation as he's proven the contrary.

i see what you did there.
dang, we need the old Javy, not an almost hurt version.

Javier Lopez provided a benign reminder of that on Tuesday. He tried to short-hop a throw and it hit him on the top of the left hand near his wrist. Having broken my wrist twice myself, I know there are a couple of little bones in there that can break if they get hit in the right spot.

I just thought about it. We have three lefties in the pen.
