Danny Valencia is in The Best Shape of His Life

From La Velle Neal of the Star-Tribune, reporting from Fort Myers this morning:

I headed over to the other side of the clubhouse, where Danny Valencia dresses. Get your urban dictionaries out, because Valencia wants everyone to know he’s “yoked,” this year.

He weighs about the same as he did last season but says it’s the best he’s ever felt.

“It’s night and day how I feel,” he said.“I really made a serious, conscious effort to get my body right. I feel like I can move and feel strong at the same time. “I  worked really hard,” he said, “ but I feel great., I’m a lot stronger than I’ve ever been. I’m faster than I’ve ever been.”

The proof will be in whether he can improve on that .246/.294/.383 line from last year.

    If there are enough of these during spring training, then we should have two fantasy teams face off: BSOHL Offseason vs. BSOHL Spring Training.

      Great list, kopy….but given that spring training is beginning and just about everyone is going to make that claim, I think the “Not BSHOHL” will be much shorter.
