  • He’s way too happy being a fatty.

    Jesse’s not fat, he’s just “festively plump”.

    thats some nice tabloid reporting. What do you think of the ballooning Jessica Simpson?

  • I can’t argue too much with the Tabloid style reporting comment but I can point out at least a few differences.

    For a talentless hack like Jessica Simpson a few extra pounds doesn’t mean much.

    To an MLB pitcher we have endurance + mechanics questions. Sure, there have been some successful “fatty” pitcher’s in the past ten seasons. Still it could be an issue, especially with Jesse gaining so much weight at this early stage in his MLB career.

    I think this needs a 2011 upgrade… he’s now tipping the scales over 225.
