“Everyone is going crazy over Sabathia’s weight loss, okay Sabathia has lost weight – that doesn’t mean he could throw better,” said the WFAN blower on his daily broadcast, lamenting that it doesn’t take much to make the headlines in sports these days.
In the 55-second clip shared by her Twitter columnist, @BackAftaThis, Francesa went on to explain that big pitchers like the 6 foot 6 inch Sabathia often struggle after losing so much weight.
“Do you think that because he lost weight at this age, he is now breathing life into a left arm that has been done? Francesa spoke of the 39-year-old future Hall of Famer, who weighed 300 pounds during his playing days. “Does that make him a pitch prospect? No, this is not the case. “
Sabathia, who looks stronger than ever, will not be hoping for a pitch as he retired at the end of last season.
It is not known exactly how much weight Sabathia has lost. A photo showing him showing his new physique went viral Monday night.
“Not Photoshopped,” YES network broadcaster Ryan Ruocco wrote on Twitter. “The fat guy went after him in his forties! “
