Brett Myers admitted to reaching the 250 mark when last season ended but a better diet and renewed work out regimen has him at a lean 218.
“I started (working out) a little earlier this year and I haven’t been able to fit into this suit in two years now and I finally made my way back into it,” Myers said, sporting a figure-flattering single-breasted design. “I just kept working and the weight just kept coming off. I really had fun doing it and it didn’t get boring so I hope I can keep at it during the season.”
Here's my guess: Myers realized after his horrible incident in Boston last year that he had allowed certain things in his life to unravel out of control. It was a wake up call of sorts. This season he has a better sense of responsibility and is more ready to win than ever before. The weight loss is a sign of a Brett Myers who is ready to turn into a real ace. That'd be nice wouldn't it?
He certainly could have just afforded to buy a couple bigger Armani suits with his new payday.
