    I am now past the point of hoping that he ever gets in shape

    But if he is a groundball machine again this year the pattern will be glaringly obvious as his one elite season will have come after his one offseason of trimming weight

    complete agree, Jimcanuck, in fact perhaps the Belt signing is a precursor

    Maybe people thought I was joking/trolling in the Belt signing thread. Trade Vladdy to the Marlins for a couple of their young pitchers.

    Not sure who if anyone is being sarcastic vs serious here

    Belt turns 35 in April, is on a 1 year deal, with no guarantee that he'll actually hit well

    Vladdy has had good and bad years, but is 23 and has proven he has the potential of MVP level batting skills

    I am being very serious. It is much easier to find an above average 1B with 3 years of control than it is to find two #3 pitchers with potential to be #2 pitchers with 4+ years of control.

    I don't think he's any BIGGER he's just not any SMALLER.

    Vlad is smelling the mega deal by now. He’s working. What he weighs is kind of debatable in terms of what it’ll do.

    Is he the kind of guy who relaxes after signing said mega deal?

    I worry he might be

    Idk. His whole life has been baseball from before he could hold a bat. It’s what he knows. It’s like NBA players, you’d think they’d get their money and thug out, but they love playing basketball. It’s what they know
