Wow! I get to use my two favorite cliches in one headline!

Before cell phone cameras we just sat around and posed in the mirror. Now we can share that with everyone.

Schroeder: What do you mean Craig Calcaterra wasn’t so great? Lucy: He never got his picture on bubblegum cards, did he? Have you ever seen his picture on a bubblegum card? Hmmm? How can you say someone is great who’s never had his picture on bubblegum cards? Schroeder: Good grief. Take that, Lucy: This awesomeness…

Because of course he is: In Jeter’s retirement call, Hal Steinbrenner said he said, “I know everybody says this, but I feel like I’m in the best shape of my life.” — Jack Curry (@JackCurryYES) March 7, 2014 Guess that means Brendan Ryan isn’t going to get as much playing time as he hoped.

Courtesy of Hunter Pence‘s instagram account comes this little gem, in which the 5’11” Tim Lincecum and the 6’8″ Kameron Loe swapped jerseys.

This one in video form. It comes at the 2:45 mark of this 3:00 video over at Boston.com. Best part: totally unprompted. Just blurts it out when talking about stealing bases. But watch the whole thing because at the beginning he talks about how great it was that he failed at the major league level last…

We heard about Melky Cabrera being in The Best Shape of His Life last week. Well, he didn’t work out alone. He had teammate Jose Bautista with him, and Bautista characterizes the purpose of those workouts: “It was kind of easy and natural and we just decided to start earlier than we normally do,” Bautista said. “We…

Trouble in Puig-a-dise? Mark Saxson of ESPN Los Angeles reports that Yasiel is a little too big for his britches. Literally: Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly acknowledged the team has some concerns about Yasiel Puig‘s conditioning. Mattingly said Puig showed up at camp weighing 251 pounds, 26 more than he weighed at the end of the regular…

This shouldn’t cause anyone to snark in Melky’s direction. Nope: More on Melky. Says he hasn’t lost a lot of weight but turned what he had into muscle. Says he’s in best shape of his life. #BlueJays — Barry Davis (@SNBarryDavis) February 20, 2014 His past good seasons corresponded with better conditioning. How much…

On the one hand, dude, you’re 22, you had better be in The Best Shape of Your Life. Indeed, there has been some talk in BSOHL circles that we should disqualify everyone under, say, 30, from BSHOL consideration. On the other hand, well, he said it: Trout checked into camp last spring weighing 241, ended…

Adam McCalvy knows what time it is. He saw catcher Martin Maldonado walk into Brewers camp and asked the hard questions that needed to be asked: After only four days off, a noticeably trim Maldonado reported for duty at Maryvale Baseball Park. “Not that I was overweight last year, but I wanted to come into…

In anticipation of sweating much less in Detroit than he did in Arlington, Texas, new Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler showed up to camp this week with an already-trim physique … Ian Kinsler said he generally gained weight in the offseason to prepare for the heat of Texas. Reported 10 pounds lighter this season. —…

It’s a young life, but still. From John Low of the Detroit Free Press: But it must be reported that right-handed reliever Bruce Rondon has arrived in Tigers spring training clearly having lost a significant amount of weight since the end of last season. How much? There’s no official word, at least yet, but he…

Physicals are happening at spring training camps. So expect more of this: .@GabySanchez15 has noticeably packed on muscle and dropped about 20 pounds of flab. Somebody *really* wants that #Pirates 1B job. — Rob Biertempfel (@BiertempfelTrib) February 13, 2014 No word if he’s also packed anything on to that career line of .258/.337/.417.
Feb 12, 2014, 4:00 PM EST
You came over in a big trade, sucked eggs, played worse defense than anyone thought and then you got suspended 50 games for PEDs. You show up for spring training in what is basically your make or break year. If that’s you, you’re doing so in great shape, right? You’re busting your hump to stay…

He’s on an MMA kick. Heavy training. And his interviewer, Toni Collins, asks him specifically if he’s in The Best Shape of His Life. And yep, he says yes. Thank you, Toni. I owe you one.

While Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis didn’t come right out and say it, this comes right out of the BSOHL playbook. According to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, Ellis said today that he lost 15 pounds over the winter. The 32-year-old dropped the weight because he wants to take on a bigger load behind…

Provisionally anyway. No actual declaration by Moustakas, but he is a strong candidate for BSHOL status during spring training: Take it for what it’s worth, but Mike Moustakas is in Arizona, and I hear he looks in good shape. Lost weight, good muscle tone, etc. — Sam Mellinger (@mellinger) January 27, 2014 Of course, the…

We have a new member of the BSOHL club and his name is Danny Espinosa. During an appearance at NatsFest today, Espinosa told Chase Hughes of CSNWashington.com that he hired a personal trainer this offseason and feels stronger now than he’s ever felt. However, there was an interesting quote among the typical offseason hyperbole, as…

Or, at the very least, good shape: At @TexasRangers – Matt Harrison looks like a new person. Dropped a lot of weight to take pressure off back. — Mac Engel (@MacEngelProf) January 21, 2014 This is the second report of Harrison’s weight loss this offseason. He has a long way to go to pass Pablo…

Crazy pic of CC Sabathia at a wedding over the weekend: But, before you go acting all shocked, go read Ken Rosenthal’s column, in which Sabathia tells him he really hasn’t lost a ton of weight. Rather, he’s just toning up and stuff. It’s possible our reaction to this pic may be a function of…
