When the skinny CC Sabathia pics started circulating a few weeks ago I thought to myself “yeah, he looks slim now, but put him in that big baggy uniform and he’ll probably be a lot closer to what we usually see.” Most players are like that. Miguel Cabrera was that way even after losing a lot of weight a couple years ago, for example. Fact is, we’re used to seeing these guys in big uniforms with multiple layers, so skinny offseason pics of guys in street clothes are often misleading.
But nope, not with CC Sabathia:

I am truly looking forward to seeing him pitch this season. Really wondering how the weight loss will affect him.
