BOSTON (CBS) – There’s no arguing this one: a Boston Red Sox have a story of players who indispensable tradition waist pants, reduction ice in a ice bath, and a small longer of a time to turn a bases.

As giveaway representative signing Pablo Sandoval joins a Sox (and fundamentally this list), we contingency be meditative about who are a largest Red Sox of all-time. Don’t worry. We’ve got we covered.

Here are a larger-than-life Red Sox around story who might have had one too many Fenway Franks.

There’s a reason they call him ‘Big Papi’ right? Standing 6’4″, 230 pounds, Ortiz has positively slimmed down around his career in Boston, though his vast support and mythological nickname don’t assistance him in this case.

2. David Wells

It usually took dual years in 2005-06 for David Wells to uncover Boston fans he wasn’t calorie challenged. A 6’3″ lefty pitcher carrying 250 pounds to a mound, Wells spent his career battling gout — now giving him a mark on this list.

The 6’4″, 275 bruise beefer righty pitcher usually played one year with Boston in 2011 to indurate his mark in Red Sox feeling glory. Plagued with injuries and eventually diagnosed with pulmonary embolism, Jenks done his final coming in MLB in Jul of 2011 with a Red Sox.

The 6’1″ 275 bruise mass of a initial baseman was famous as “The Hit Dog” on a field, and he probably desired prohibited dogs off a field. If we never saw him play, suppose Rick Ross crowding a image with definite athleticism.

6. Rod Beck

Why do all of these large guys have cold nicknames? Beck, famous as “Shooter,” was a service pitcher for a Sox from 1999-2001. Standing 6’1″ and weighing an unaccepted 230 pounds, Beck rocked his mullet, mustache and tummy for 4 teams around his 13-year career.

7. Babe Ruth

Sure, he will be always famous as a Yankee. But that doesn’t meant he wasn’t corpulent on a Red Sox. The Great Bambino began his career as a lefty pitcher for a Sox before rewriting story as a slugger for a Yankees. In a time where prohibited dogs, not HGH, were in abundance, Ruth was king.

Are there some-more plump Red Sox to come? We’re only going to have to weight and see.
