Astros pitcher Nelson Figueroa reminds us that spring is right around the corner:

I was very fortunate for the past few years to go to the Dominican and win a few championships in the Caribbean Series. This year, going to Spring Training and not having to do all that, not having to do all that work ahead of time…I feel like I’m going to be in the best shape that I can possibly be because I’ve been working out the whole time.

Robins. Crocuses. People pretending to care about college basketball. Best shape of my life quotes.  I can almost smell the cut grass, the beer and the hot dogs already!

    I did have the pleasure of eating breakfast with him yesterday morning (and Humberto Quintero, Brad Mills and Milo Hamilton) and he did look like he was in good shape…I mean sitting next to Quintero made him look like a lean muscled machine.

    If it was a booth, he must be in tip top form, otherwise sitting next to Quintero would have been impossible.

    It was a long table where they both had ample room to devour breakfast tacos. Even Milo threw a few jabs at Quintero for eating too many helpings a couple years ago.

      I really liked this guy when he was with the phills. It was a shame to see him go. He’s a great pick up for any team imo. The $$$ is well worth it.
