Tallying up the MLB players who “are in the best shape of their lives”
MLB Players who are in the best shape of their lives
Every off-season before Spring Training begins I hear a bevy of ball players (and their agents) telling the media that those players “are in the best shape of their lives”. Obviously, this is more than just working out hard during the time away from the diamond—some of it may not even be true, but they are trying to create a positive spin on their clients or themselves to help in future negotiations or just public perception. So what I have decided to do at MFST is tally up these athletes and keep track how they do this season and if being in the “best shape of their life” actually translates to the field.
- James McCann-C-Detroit Tigers
- Matt Adams-1B- St. Louis Cardinals
- Pablo Sandoval-3B-Boston Red Sox
- Yasiel Puig-OF-LA Dodgers
I will update this list as more players proclaim their amazing off-season has led them down this path. Looking at the early list, I don’t think being in shape can help a lot of these players—looking at you Sandoval. But hey, maybe I’m way off.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/tallying-up-the-mlb-players-who-are-in-the-best-shape-of-their-lives/https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/a-1.png?fit=489%2C284&ssl=1https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/a-1.png?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1MLBRecent Posts#MLB,mlb players who are in the best shape of their livesMLB Players who are in the best shape of their lives Every off-season before Spring Training begins I hear a bevy of ball players (and their agents) telling the media that those players 'are in the best shape of their lives'.
