Default Most Muscular Player In Baseball....Not That It Matters

So...who is it? For position players, I think it's a tie between Gary Sheffield and Gabe Kapler. Sheff has the biggest forearms I've ever seen, and Kapler is just really buff.

As for pitchers, it's Kevin Brown, hands down. How that man can have such bulky arms and still pitch boggles the mind.

Well I posted it because I'm amazed how huge some of the players' forearms are. Don't worry, I'm straight as an arrow.

Bonds and Sosa are pretty ripped. Giambi is also a good choice.

Ruben Sierra is one of the most muscular people in any sport. He got too big too quickly and lost his flexibility. He was an all-star in 1989, 91,92, & 94. He was basically out of baseball after 1996 at age 31. He is back now and has had a couple of decent years, currently riding the bench in New York, I believe.

actually Sierra has been DHing a lot in NY. that will change when Nick Johnson returns but he is solid off the bench if we need him. same with Karim Garcia, both are starter-caliber and we can use them off the bench.

on a side note the Yanks aquired 46 year old lefty specialist Jesse Orosco from San Diego for a player to be named later. other than giving us a left specialist we've been lacking the trade will end up meaningless since we'll give up nothing more than a mid-level A prospect.

haha. I think that would have to go to some 180 lbs pitcher that no one has heard of.

And the reason no1 as heard of him is because he is not as strong as any1 else. This is due to the fact that every other player is on roids and he's not.

This would be a thread for the Football Forum, not the Baseball Forum, but it could be interesting to read.
