Duda's BMI is probably well over 20% still. It is amazing how given the tools and the opportunity he hasn't leaned out and gotten his crap together. He easily could have lost several more inches of body fat. Zero discipline. I'm glad he feels confident enough to live large, it will play well in Vegas.

Geez, I hope a big gust of wind doesn't take EY out over the Atlantic.

Did Duda lose 5 to 10 lbs after gaining 50? He looks enormous in that photo with Ike

Actually, Duda looks pretty fit. Who knows. Championship teams are built on both big things AND little things.

Mejia is the man if he's healthy. His stuff was nasty for those 4 games last year. True, he does look like Pedro. Also, he looks like an actor from the movie CB4 or better yet Boyz in the Hood.

does matter if he lost weight if he keeps the bat on his shoulders . Duda does not look that much lighter.

5-10 pounds? That's the amount of water he drinks in a day.

I think Jenny Craig has a money back guarantee.  Does the Michigan program?  Because I'd put in for it if I was the Mets and Duda.
