We totally don't even medal...

Every time some Cubs writer/blogger or other irreverent person decides to complain and/or make fun of the Brewers this season, it's invariably involved jokes about the weight of players like CC Sabathia and Prince Fielder.

Oh, but revenge is ours!!!

This week's Sports Illustrated features a table on "Heavy Hitters"

The heaviest team? The Chicago White Sox who's average weight is 226.6 pounds. Bobby Jenks at 275 pounds and AJ Pierzynski at 240 pounds are listed.

The second is the Rangers, with an average weight of 217 pounds. They have an MLB-high 14 players who weight over 220 pounds!!

Third is the Diamondbacks, with an average weight of 215.8 pounds. Their Jon Rauch ties CC as the leagues heaviest.

The Brewers come in forth and with a team average of 215.4 pounds. Prince, CC and Seth McClung help tip the scales for us.

The Yankees come in fifth with 215.2 pounds.

On the other end of the spectrum, the skinniest team is the A's at 200.2 pounds average weight.

The Giants are next at 201.6 pounds. Then comes the Royals at 203, the Pirates at 203.4 and the Ray at 203.5.

So there!!!
