"I worked out with a dumbbell today. I feel vigorous!"

Travis Hafner met with the media today, and he is noticeably slimmer and less built these days. But it’s hardly a ridiculous development. He’s not emaciated or anything like that. He said he’s lost about 10 pounds and is down to 250.

The thinner waist comes from his newly healthy diet (“A lot of it is just not going out to restaurants as much,” he said), and the smaller frame is a product of only recently being able to up the ante on his weight-lifting and strengthening exercises following arthroscopic surgery on his shoulder in October.

I’m not going to read too much into the loss of 10 pounds and what it might mean for Hafner’s productivity this season, as some people have. That’s an opinion that will be formed over the course of Spring Training camp. Because until this guy picks up a bat, it’s difficult to assess what he’ll be able to contribute to this team after missing the bulk of 2008.

For the record, Pronk won’t swing a bat until Monday. When he does, it will be the first time he’s done so since the last day of the ’08 season.

Here’s the full story on the Hafner media session.

Oh, and a P.S. on Pronk. This arctic weather we’re enduring in Cleveland (it’s 7 degrees, with the wind chill pushing it down to minus-8, last I checked) is a veritable summer day for the Sykeston, N.D., native. He said his relatives back home told him it was minus-33 degrees, with a wind chill of minus-55.

Wow, that’s cold. I almost feel guilty for wearing my board shorts and a beater and surfing all week in the unseasonable warmth…wait…no I don’t. That’s why I moved.

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your thoughts? I mean, what you say is important and everything. But its got no punch, no pop! Maybe if you added a pic or two, a video? You could have such a more powerful blog if you let people SEE what you’re talking about instead of just reading it. Sterling Silver Jewelry
