How about that Colby Rasmus fella? Some will tell you it is because he’s adjusted to MLB pitching, some will tell you it is because he’s cut out the White Castle burgers at 2 am, some will tell you it is the 20 lbs he put on in the off-season, while others will say it is because he has a family now. Honestly, though, I tend to think it is his Jedi Training with Darth Firebeard as shown here levitating a ball to the delight of fans.
