Ronnie Belliard Will Be Jealous

Russell Martin and Brad Ausmus at Camelback Ranch.

From @dylanohernandez:

Russell Martin said he weighs 231 pounds; he said he weighed 206-207 pounds when he reported to camp last year.

Martin said he lifted more this off-season because he wanted to add muscle.

Martin said he thinks he looks "like a fullback." He still does yoga but has cut down.

Previously at SoSG: Namaste, Russell

RMart looks like Ronny from the Jersey Shore.

Torre is committing himself to the Dodgers for 2011. They have started negotiations. http://tinyurl.com/ykp28ch

A fatter Russ in the spring means a powerful Russ in September.


Hopefully.

Lemme guess - Gagne's been hanging out with Russ all winter and they switched diets.

Dusty Baker said...

Or they switched "medicinal regimens."

Russ looks like he's added table muscle instead of the good kind, is he trying to model his game after Bengie Molina :(?

Steve Sax said...

Dudes, that shot of Russ makes me less confident. He looks fat.

Dusty Baker said...

Recall that it's common for catchers to report to ST with a lot of bulk, as they lose so much of it during the grueling season behind the plate.

Martin's power isn't the problem, it's his accuracy. I'm worried he's still going to take bad hacks, only harder.

Dusty Baker said...

Specifically, hitting it really hard but right at the SS shouldn't be the preferred method for J-Mart.
