Man. We heard last week that Jesus Montero reported to Mariners camp overweight — that he admitted that all he did after winter ball was eat and was now on a weight-loss program — but we had no idea it was this bad. Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports that Montero was 40 pounds over his target weight set by the team when he showed up to Peoria.

And, as Divish reports, GM Jack Zduriencik was not happy:

That disinterest in conditioning in the offseason didn’t do much change the minds of people who have been skeptical of Montero’s work ethic. It certainly didn’t inspire Zduriencik, who was clearly unhappy with the situation.

“It’s up to him,” Zduriencik said. ” I have zero expectations for Jesus Montero. Any expectations I had are gone.”

If your boss says that you basically have no future. Just unbelievable to see someone squander an opportunity like Montero has.

    Think about this. If someone said here’s a million dollars if you can gain 40lbs in 6 weeks, do you think you could do it?

    How many calories a day would you have to eat to gain that much weight in such a short period of time?
