Ok, so who are the fattest active MLB players, and where do they rank?

Heath Bell
CC Sabathia
Jonathan Broxton
Pablo Sandoval
Cecil Fielder

Seems like all of the above have to be at or near 300 lbs. Any others?

Bartolo Colon would be on the list, but he's lost some weight after Tyler Durden made some soap.

Prince's card probably says 275 but I'd bet he's closer to 300 even at his height. Broxton is a big boy too - probably close to 300 but has like six inches on Prince. Sabathia is even taller than Broxton.

Pounds per inch has to be Prince.

I think that many of these players state their weight incorrectly on their cards, promos, stat sheets, etc. Vin Scully often cites Broxton's weight at about 290, but at his height and girth, he's clearly over 300 lbs.

Carlos Silva/Carlos Lee/Bobby Abreu/Bengie Molina/Joe (Plumpy) Blanton/Kevin Gregg/Henry Blanco (Padres)

Does anyone believe that Prince Fielder is a vegetarian? cause I'm not believing that Cecil Fielder's son would pass on the rib eye steak or the skirt steak......ummm

well, he started the whole vegetarian stuff before last season after his creepy PETA wife made him switch. He looks the same. Ever seen the nutrition on some of that soy crap? Soy ice cream is even worse for you then regular ice cream. Soy in general is not good for you

Most guys don't change their stats after they enter the league. Look at old pics of David Ortiz, he was prob 230 then

Just for reference, Aubrey Huff is listed at 6'4" and 235 lbs. That is 5 pounds heavier than Ortiz is listed. I don't know about you guys, but when I look at Aubrey Huff, I see something very different than when I look at David Ortiz

Jonathan Broxton has 3% body fat with an 8 pack and can bench press 450 pounds it is just an optical illusion perpetrated by the HD cameras, ive seen him in real life and he's built like a graceful ballet dancer.:D

Walter Young of the Orioles he played in the majors in 2005 but he is in their farm system still i believe if he is he def takes the crown. He's 6-5 322lbs hahahahttp://www.baltimoresun.com/media/photo/2005-03/16575894.jpg

If he doesnt count than probaby CC Sabathia.. by the way i think i know what CC stands for i narrowed it down to a couple things....

* Chocolate Chip * Cheese Cake * Chocolate Cake * Cream Cheese
* Cheesen Crackers * Crispy Creme * Candy Cane * Chimi Changa
* C Cup * Cholesterol Choked * Cottage Cheese

Im stumped what could it be...:confused:

There's not a whole lot of fat athletes

I wouldn't say Soto is fat at all.

However, a simple 10 pounds could change the mechanics of one's swing. Not saying that's his problem this year, but it's entirely possible.

You can't really say someone is the fattest because they weigh the most, muscle weighs more than fat. With that being said I think Fielder has the most chunk in the MLB.

Muscle weighs the same as fat.

I don't understand that myth. 20 lbs of fat is the same as 20 lbs of muscle, just like 5 lbs of rocks and 5 lbs of feathers.

I think they mean by volume. As in, a mL of muscle will weigh more than a mL of fat. Thus, muscle is more dense than fat. that's what the rumor means, not sure if its true.

It is true, i went to the Doctors to get my sports physical. And im a pretty small guy only 5'10 and i weigh 190. My body fat % is 8.5 which is very low. I am 15 pounds over weight because muscle weights more than fat.

People on this thread were naming players that weighed the most, which isn't correct because if you were to fill a cup, not a scale, with muscle and another with fat, the muscle outweighs it.

Muscle density is 1.06 g/ml and fat density is (about) 0.9 g/ml. One liter of muscle would than weigh 1.06 kg and one liter of fat would than weigh 0.9 kg. Stated in another way, muscle is 18% more dense than fat.
