Weighty Match-up Matters

Friday’s Giants/Yankees game in New York should feature Tim Lincecum versus CC Sabathia.  With Lincecum listed at 170 pounds and Sabathia at 290 (at least on Baseball Reference, with the proviso that these weights aren’t updated very often if at all), there is a 120-pound difference between the opposing hurlers.

Sabathia is a part of many of the most disparate weight match-ups in MLB history.  Here are the largest differences through 2012:
