08:14 AM ET 02.21 | Pablo Sandoval will have a personal chef this season to help him keep off the weight that former Olympic decathlete Dan O'Brien helped him shed. When Sandoval first walked into the Triple Threat Performance facility, O'Brien didn't take notice of him. "He came in with his agent, and I thought they were a couple Joes off the street," O'Brien said. "Honestly, I didn't think he was an athlete. The agent introduced him, and I was like, 'Oh my gosh, this might be the biggest third baseman I've ever seen.'" ... Just more than three months later, Banning reported that Sandoval weighed 240 pounds when he took his physical Friday morning. His body fat measurement went from 30 percent to 19 percent. Combined with an estimated gain of seven pounds of muscle, Banning said Sandoval has shed 45 pounds of goo.

What a lovely image. Takes pork chop to a whole new level.

What wasn't immediately revealed is that the 45 pounds of goo wasn't exactly lost, it was deposited on Cain's face.

His expression suggests there is a Krispy Kreme somewhere directly in his line of sight.

Maybe he should share his dietary secrets with Prince Fielder because that vegetarian thing Prince has got going isn't working out so well.

He had a big year in 2010 that had nothing to do with baseball.

He is such a superbly conditioned professional athlete, having only 19% body fat! On a 240 pound frame, that means he still has 47 pounds of fat on him.

If he can learn to lay off the high fastball as well as he apparently learned to lay off third and fourth helpings, maybe he won't be a human double play machine this season.
