We bring you the hard hitting news here at Hardball… Fan… Mound… Interference Conversations. Yesterday, Scout reported the finalists in the Sexy Baseball Draft according to the Daily News. This is exactly how I plan to draft my fantasy baseball team, by the way. Good looking players only. Rotoworld has nothing on this info. I haven’t won via the traditional methods, so what the heck? I was curious, and using 2015 fWAR and discounting Dustin Ackley, because he’s not cute enough to make up for negative WAR, that team would average 5.2 fWAR. I’ll take it.
Now I will show you how these baseball players get into such fine shape. Dare I say, the Best Shape in Their Lives?
For @historiophiliac, I bring you Mike Trout, tossing the old tractor tire around just like pa used to do:

Dee Gordon does traditional push-ups, just like you and me, with chains around his neck:
For @professormaddog31, here’s Bryce Harper doing rows. She’s right. He does kind of look like a potato, crossed with a Cro-Magnon man.
Pick up the pace a little, Cano. He does everything slow, huh.
Here’s Prince Fielder, trying to destroy his back with a 505 lb deadlift while Andrus cheers for him. Ouch, that rounded back. You’re killing me, Prince.
Here’s Harvey demonstrating better form:
History’s Greatest Monster runs on the beach for his exercise (“Running in sand is a great way to disguise how slow you are.” Although, I am perplexed. He appears to be running on sand, not in sand.):
This, of course, immediately came to mind:
Finally, the Boys from the D take a much more laid approach to working out:
21 days until Spring Training. 🙂
