Quote of the Day

Via Tweet Deck:

#Braves reliever Peter Moylan on going from 248 lbs to 225:

“I had to, I was fat as s— last year. There comes a time when you look at yourself and go, alright, time to stop…. It doesn’t come off as easily as it used to. I worked my ass off, now it’s off. Hopefully I can keep it off during the season.”

“I walked in yesterday and got on the scales and it was not 225.3, it was 223 on the money. I couldn’t believe it.”

This quote is just hilarious because Moylan is so honest and sincere about his weight. He comes all out and tells everyone that he needed to lose the weight to pitch better in the MLB. Surprisingly, I have to agree with him. The reason is because as a submarine thrower, you do not want to have extra body fat to prevent you from leaning down on your wind up. I believe with the weight loss this season, he will be even more effective this season than he was last season. Now that the Braves are without manager Bobby Cox, they need to change this guy to a 7th or 8th inning guy rather than a right handed specialist…
