Found December 06, 2011 on Mr. Irrelevant:
PLAYERS: Dmitri Young
Dmitri Young, our sixth-most blogged-about person of 2008, weighed in at 291 pounds once, the year after batting .320, and he’s looked pretty much the same ever since. Here’s what Da Meathook is looking like now, though, (via Nats Enquirer): There’s no telling what the secret to his success is (massage therapy perhaps?), but word is he’s lost 70 pounds, which is 20 more than two months ago when he was playing winter ball in Venezuela. Da Meathook is making another comeback, you see, and the Nats need depth at 1B (really, they do). I don’t see why this can’t happen, or, more accurately, I really want this to happen.
