A while ago, The Nationals Enquirer promised to stop making
fat jokes jokes about Dmitri Young's weight issues, you know, since diabetes is no laughing matter and all. But with news of Da Meathook's trip to the 15-day DL to get his diabetes under control again after a blood-sugar scare this weekend, we''ll leave the fat jokes up to Jim Bowden, who proves that even with his own job possibly on the line, at least he still has his sense of humor, dropping this zinger about the plan to get Da Meat's weight under control (via Washington Times):
"Get the diabetes under control, get him into first-class physical shape so he can play baseball at the level he was at last year."
First-class physical shape! Cue the laugh track, Jim. First-class physical shape?
Meanwhile...time to get used to the idea of Paul Lo Duca at first for a while...
