Trevor Cahill told Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic that he’s lost 10-15 pounds because he wasn’t happy with his defense and athleticism last year. Nick is hip to the BSHOL club and he’s a good reporter, so he asked the question that had to be asked:

Does this mean he’s a member of the Best Shape of His Life club?

“I was maybe in better shape when I was 16,” Cahill said.

How about Best Shape of His Adult Life?

“Yeah,” he said. “I’m still not an adult, though.”

That’s well and good, but Cahill is an Arizona Diamondback. More important than his conditioning is his GF (grit factor). Gotta know where that stands before I can do an accurate prediction of how his season is gonna go.
