Here are the first 7 top heaviest pitching matchups
1) Sabathia vs. Carlos Silva on 5/31/05 - 542 lbs.
2) Sabathia vs. David Wells on 6/20/05 - 538 lbs.
3) Sabathia vs. Joe Kennedy on 6/15/05 - 535 lbs. Sensing a pattern yet?
4) Sabathia vs. Brett Tomko on 6/10/05 - 518 lbs.
5) Sabathia vs. Roy Halladay on 5/15/05 - 515 lbs.
6) Sabathia vs. Mark Buehrle on 6/5/05 - 510 lbs.
7) Brad Penny vs. Carlos Zambrano on 5/31/05 - 505 lbs.
This means Sabathia's last starts have been #'s 1, 6, 4, 3, and 2. Also, look at May 31st. Between 4 guys there was over 1/2 ton starting pitching. I'm working on finding every matchup greater than 500 lbs, but this isn't easy, I have to sort through 5,041 matchups. I do have my friend Excel to help though, so it's not as bad as it sounds.
I've finished my research, and I've found 11 more occurences of pitchers weight a combined 500+.
