Washington Nationals burning off-season question #1: Is Bryce Harper turning into a fatty fatty?
Ever since Harper revealed his plan to put on bulk this offseason, raising his weight to “big as a house,” there has been some concern that Harper might go overboard and show up to spring training looking like John Candy.
Harper assures us this is not happening. He is not turning into Chris Farley. He told Harold Reynolds:
It’s kind of crazy that everyone’s going a little berserk about me putting on weight. I was 235 coming in last year. It’s not sloppy weight. I’m not fat. I look pretty good. [Laughing] I don’t want to say that, but I’m not gonna lie. It’s not like I’m out eating McDonalds and Del Taco every night. I eat good. My Mom fixes dinner every night…
Perhaps the headline should be: Bryce Harper’s Mom Makes His Dinner Every Night.
Bryce Harper Says Eating At McDonald’s and Del Taco Will Make You the Bad Kind of Heavy.
I admit, I am now highly intrigued by this whole situation. I want to see what Bryce Harper looks like in a couple weeks when spring training opens. Will he have some nice extra bulk or will he look like Mac in Season Seven of It’s Always Sunny?
Yeah it’s nice that his mom is cooking his meals, but is his mom also regulating his portions? You can get just as fat on Mom food as you can on McDonald’s. That’s science.
