Eating after 8pm is a tough one for anyone over weight.

Well, at least it sounds justified.    Glad to see he recognized he needed to deal with the issue.   Now, let’s see if it actually helps his pitching.

And you know you're in bad shape when you lose 25 pounds and you're still fat.  But kudos to him for heading in the right direction and putting down the fork.

Yeah, because even at Fan Fest, he was still pretty hefty.

And I don't know why they would want him in LF with Diaz, McKenna and Hays are coming in the next year.

I think you sort out where guys fit on your ML roster AFTER those guys prove they belong on a ML roster. For prospects, unless you have a glut of elite guys, you try to figure out where the individual can be the best he can be. 

I think it's far from certain that any of Diaz, McKenna, Hays, Mountcastle or Mullins will be a first division starter in the majors. They all have a lot to prove, and improve.

Castro is the anti-Ortiz. Maybe he could find 10-20 of those pounds?

Seriously, he's a guy who I can imagine analytics really helping. Has really impressive arm talent. Needs to figure out how to use it. Could be a breakout guy. Could be a bust.

He needs to eat after 8 pm.
