Ethan Roberts Submits Entry into Cubs Reliever Prospect Deadlift Competition
Not to be outdone by Manuel Rodriguez, righty reliever Ethan Roberts posted a video to Twitter of a recent deadlift rep. The humble Roberts noted that the rep wasn’t quite as clean, but picking up 425 pounds when you only go about a buck-eighty is pretty solid.
1. Not the cleanest rep.
2. Not @manrod_77 strong.
3. But I am pushing my limits. #425

Carrying a chip on his shoulder has made his legs pretty strong and having jet fuel in his veins provided a little extra boost. For more on that and who Roberts is as a person and pitcher, check out our recent interview with him on The Rant Live.
Now I guess we sit back and wait for Ben Leeper or Burl Carraway to post an entry for the competition.
