A few days ago I was lamenting the fact that we may be nearing the end of BSOHL season, but then I remembered that it really peaks when spring training starts and the writers tweet about players’ bodies a lot. Like this:
Jake Westbrook walked into Cards camp about 25 pounds lighter. Looks super trim. #stlcards

This BSHOL may be a bit premature — he should give an interview talking about it or have a feature story done on it first — but if he has truly lost 25 pounds, that is almost certainly the Best Shape of His Life.
