Plouffe turns 28 this year and buffing up not likely to change the fact that, outside of the incredible 2012 hot streak, he is a mediocre major league player.

Simply put, Plouffy is on the juice and Worley is now officially off.

Curious, are workouts and diets forbidden during the baseball season?

I hope the Vanimal turns things around and has a great 2014. Plouffe.......too little too late.

I really like Plouffy. I really wish it had been different, but he just isn't the answer. I thought he'd make a better RF, but that didn't really pan out either. Now we all anticipate the debut of Sano...sometime after the All-Star break.

Plouffe may have bulked up...he still cannot stop a ground ball or throw straight however! I doubt the bulk will help on the strikeouts as well! He never was, nor will he ever be, the answer at third!!

I agree with the summation of toatsmcgoats, although I am wondering if Plouffe could stick as a utility player/DH type if the extra muscle gives him 10 extra HR this year. Regardless, I totally agree with those who have said he's not the answer at 3B.

Now all Plouffe needs are reflexes and a set of hands and he's in business.

The fact that these two guys are even considered to have a chance at this roster pretty much tells the fate of this miserable organization. Ugh.

Ah, spring training stories. A is bigger. B is slimmer. Someone saw some oft-injured pitcher throw and thought he "looked good." Next are the stories on quirky rookies or quirky journeymen, followed by the stories written in previous years by other beat writers when a veteran was in that city. See: R.A. Dickey and his absent elbow ligament.
