    Adrian Gonzalez is training under former heavyweight boxing champion Chris Byrd, who calls him a "world-class athlete":

    I thought he was going to try and get better at hitting things with a bat?

    Sweet. He should be ready to charge the mound when someone throws behind him and do okay. Unlike Kemp and that Rockies backstop who dealt to him.

    Any news on his BASEBALL training?

    I think Gonzo will have a good year. He's definitely got something to prove

    What I want to know, is he seeing a shrink to deal with the tremendous pressure of the Mexican population, who unless they all moved en masse over the winter, I presume is still prevalent in LA.
    Because if he flounders, and some wanker comes up with "ethnic pressure" as a reason again, I'll....IDK what.
    I think this line of reasoning is the biggest pile of bullshit BB has ever come up with to justify a player's slower bat or declining numbers. It's laughable.
    Jackie must be turning over in his grave.
    However, he does look leaner and meaner, so, bueno para usted, Adrianito.
    Did anyone see Andre in the vicinity, maybe working on his pectoral muscles (if they are still considered muscles, that is)?
    That's one thing about Hanley though, the guy is as cut and muscular as you can get.
    Just dopey.
