The Washington Fats

The Washington Nationals problems offensively can be shown no better than this. It is sad when a vast number of your key and role players have a lower batting average than they do official weight.

  • Nick Johnson
  • 237lbs – .223

  • Wily Mo Pena
    268lbs – .219
  • Austin Kearns
    238lbs – .208
  • Paul Lo Duca
    213lbs – .200
  • Ronnie Belliard
    214lbs – .197
  • Johnny Estrada
    254lbs – .179

  • Two players are closing in on this dubious stat as well

  • Ryan Zimmerman
    228lbs – .240

  • Willie Harris
    186lbs – .196

  • This is not including 300 pound Dmitri Young who has only 2 at bats

    As of 5/11/08 the nationals average weight for position players was 230 and the team batting average was .237. When your team cant even carry its own weight while batting there are serious problems that aren’t just with the pitching staff.

      Perhaps they just need to sign some really fat guys. If a dude is sitting at 400 lbs. and hits .350, he’d be moooooney.

      I’d totally over pay at Nationals Park to see that.
