11:15 AM ET 02.15 | If the Blue Jays, in 2014, are going to be the team they expected to be in 2013, there is a long laundry list of things that have to go right. Right at the top of that list is the performance of Brandon Morrow. He knows it and the Blue Jays know it. "He's going to be big for us," said manager John Gibbons. "There is no limit to how good he can be." Morrow is already working on the "big" theme. He's added about 10 pounds of muscle from where he was at the end of last season and about 25 pounds more than he had on his 6-foot-3 frame when he reported to spring training a year ago.

I wonder when they say that they bulked up, does that mean sitting on the couch the whole off season???

Not if he's added 10lbs of muscle.
