I doubt Kaplan put him on a scale. Seems like a harmless blandishment from a sports journalist who wants to ensure continued access to a player.

That's the thing; Italian dude from a family that loves to eat somehow drops 30 pounds over the holidays? Nigh impossible. Hopefully just Kaplan being an idiot.

I can almost see Kaplan's blank dopey expression when I read that tweet.

I can see the drool as he scours the laundry for another athlete's jock.

OK, all joking a salad, I was genuinely concerned about Rizzo. To me this seems way too early for the usual "he's in the best shape of his life" stories; If I see someone I haven't seen in only a couple months and I think "whoa, they've lost 30 pounds" odds are I'm going to be worried something is wrong with them, especially if it happened over the holidays. Plus he's a power guy, so I would have figured that getting him into shape would be a combination of losing a little weight and conditioning, and not just dramatically dropping the equivalent of a toddler with still over a month to go before pitchers and catchers report. Obviously, it's all just based off of Kaplan's dumbass tweet, but it's still surprising to me.

Not surprising, I thought rizzo got a little pudgy as the season went on last year. Probably working out a lot more now that it's the offseason.

Also 30 might be a stretch, he looks totally fine in that picture.

Kaplan: You look great. Are you losing weight?
Rizzo: About 30 pounds. *rolls eyes*
Kaplan: *tweets*
Rizzo: *eats 2 more cannoli, blows fart at Kaplan*

But really, it probably wasn't even Rizzo that Kaplan was talking to.

He definitely looks more slim/fit in this pic he just tweeted.

Maybe he was on some Jerry Lewis-style steroids and he's cycling.

That pic makes me want to feed him a sammich or five.

His interaction with the Cubs twitter account afterwards was worth a chuckle too.
