DateQuestionAnswer
2010-01-19 15:30:00 (link to chat)Have you seen the photos of Geovany Soto from this past weekend's Cubs Convention? He has lost 40+ lbs. Is there a point where a player can lose too much weight, especially behind the plate?
(Jack from Chicago)
Never mind him, have you seen Alton Brown? I turned on Iron Chef the other day and thought the man was dying -- just turned out he had worked some Atkins variation. Atkins scares me, both from the point of view of cardiac health and I also understand the boomerang possibilities are pretty good. ...There is a long history of players who have struggled to keep their weight up during the long season, just as there has been some, like Soto, who have struggled to keep it down. Both have their negatives. Will Carroll would probably have a more informed answer to this question than I do and maybe he'll chime in here before we quit. (Steven Goldman)

(mhixpgh from Pittsburgh)
I love that idea. I've been looking for an excuse to chat up Alton Brown. He's sort of the sabermeterician of cooking.

...Dan: I'll read the economics article you sent and possibly respond to it at Wholesomereading.com. (Steven Goldman)
