Chris Sale can’t gain weight, no matter how hard he tries

Monday March 14th, 2016

White Sox pitcher Chris Sale just can’t seem to gain any weight.

The 6’6” 180-pound flamethrower has been eating pizza, tacos, and cheeseburgers all off-season in hopes to getting his weight up to 200 lbs, yet remains as skinny as a rail.

His teammates are jealous.


“I don’t think he'll ever see 200. I don’t think he'll ever see 195,” said White Sox leadoff man Adam Eaton. “And he’s eating whatever he wants to come across his plate. I don’t know, he’s been blessed.”

Food certainly does not rank as a Sale enemy. Check out some of the meals he devours.

Pizza, but Sale admits that's “junk food.” At his house, he thrives on cheeseburgers, steaks and tacos.

“We don’t miss many taco nights,” said Sale. “My wife makes phenomenal tacos. So I would say steak, cheeseburgers and taco night.”

Sale is living out every American’s dream. Eat whatever you want, and pay no consequences for it. 

He’s right about Chicago pizza, too. That stuff is junk.
