Sports commentary: Large thoughts

-A A +A

Baseball is getting big. I mean the players.

By Mike Forster

  Baseball is big.

The sport has big games, big excitement, big stadiums, big drama, big defensive plays and big hits.

It also has big players.

As I watch this year's World Series, I am struck by how large are the men who are playing in it.

The Tigers have behemoths such as Prince Fielder (275 pounds), Miguel Cabrera (6' 4", 240) and Delmon Young (6' 3", 240).

Relief pitchers Jose Valverde (6' 4", 254) and Octavio  Dotel (6', 230) provide heft from the pen.
