    No one can beat father of time, but those who put some serious time in can keep him back for a while.....PAPI just might have 2-3 good years left in him.

    Is that photoshopped??

    He looks great! Give him another year... and perhaps a Wakefield clause!Tongue Out

    Oh wait a minute, that was the subject of about 8 other threads...

    No doubt that Papi's done a good job of taking care of himself in the off-season.

    Unfortunately for Bill-666, working out won't make Papi any less Black.

    I think the combined weight that CC & Papi has lost is more than I weigh, and I'm not skinny!

    Dear Boofhead Billy.

    The heel is fine thanks, you complete m oron.

    Did you happen to notice I hit 300/100 for the season, and was the MVP of the World Series?

    Now take your pills, and get off to bed.

    Papi

    Re: Big Papi...loooooking good!

    There are those that argue that David Ortiz, or Mickey Lolich, or Babe Ruth, or Charles Barkley, ad pinguedo, could have/should have been ultra fit their entire careers.

    But a) carrying a few extra pounds doesn't matter so very much when you're a young athlete, and b) you have to allow for personality/character differences.  For example, it drove me fing insane when, for example, in 2000 Nomar hit .372 overall but .432 on the first pitch yet still there were moaning moaners moaning that he swung too often at the first pitch.  Way to think, thinkies!  Your aggressive SS is the top hitter for average in all of The Ted's Major F***ing Leagues, and that's still not good enough....AND you want him to be LESS aggressive?  Brilliant.  Papi?  He excelled physically for years despite being overweight...he had/has a gigantic, expansive personality that simply didn't/doesn't want to be a gym bunny.  But now he gets it!  He's aging, his body's changing, his infrastructure isn't able to support the extra weight anymore, he wants to keep performing at his elite level...and isn't arrogant enough to deny the truth.  I love him for that, on top of so much else.

    And before JimCrow-666 says it's all about money, I think it's mostly about him wanting to continue to excel and, yes, be a beloved hero as long as possible.  I do too.

    was that crack about Papi really necessary? IMHO I don't think the color of Papi's skin has anything to do with Bill-806.

    Next thing you know, Bill will have to come up with a new catch-phrase for him...I suggest "38 going on 32"!
