Eduardo Rodriguez is in The Best Shape of His Life

We’ve had far fewer BSOHL reports this winter than ever before. Is it because, by now, everyone knows that it’s a cliche that we’ve been mocking for years and years? Or is it because those quotes usually come after interviews that take place after a guy looking to bounce back has signed a deal someplace and . . . no one is signing anyplace?

NO MAN CAN SAY!

But now that players are starting to trickle into spring training camps, expect some more of these bad boys. Like this one, from Alex Cora, speaking of lefty Eduardo Rodriguez

Just once, I’d like to see someone playing baseball who is in the worst shape of their life.

I know it's technically not baseball, but every year everyone at Primer Softball is in the worst shape of their life.

That said, Blastin's version of "worst shape of his life" is a far better shape than any of us have ever been. If we play a doubleheader he'll leave after one game because he has a marathon to run.

Has anyone given Bartolo a contract for this year yet?
