Jesse Hahn may be in The Best Shape of His Life

Hard to figure out where to categorize this story about A’s pitcher Jesse Hahn. On the one hand, it’s a story about how a player packed on muscle in the offseason as a means of atoning for some shortcomings the previous year and that’s right up in BSOHL territory.

On the other hand, it’s coming late — rare are the non-winter/spring training BSHOL stories — and it’s even possible that he’s in worse actual shape now that he has given up his previous regimen of cardio work in the interest of bacon and eggs and meat for dinner every night.

Either way, go read Jane Lee’s profile of Hahn’s offseason weight gain and keep it in mind as we count his innings this season.
