And now, back to Ryan… I still have shivers about his defense, but if he keeps hitting like this, stick him anywhere. Hell, let him play catcher. But I think we’re going to want his bat at the plate as much as possible.
It's never too early. Funny that he sucked for 3 years but never thought about bulking back up before. Decisions. Decisions. 1) "Do I continue to take a beating from the fans over sucking?". 2) "Do you take a buyout to spare myself the embarassment of being so bad while collecting so much money?' or 3) "Do I try to regain something of the form I had, collect all of my money, and not get roasted by the fans and media?". It looks like he chose #3 but if '#3 was as easy as lifting like crazy over the winter you have to wonder why he didn't do that prior to 2018 and 2019. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me.
