David Ortiz Big Papi in the hospital for tests...

Like we didn't see this coming?

Overweight baseball players are bound to have their health catch up with them and it did for David Ortiz.

Ortiz standing 6'4 and weighing 230lbs. (according to espn's player profile)

Highly unbelievable.

I do wish him the best of luck but...drinking coffee on the way to the hospital? C'mon Big Papi, your not exactly helping here! Your going to the hospital for heart irregularities stop throwing the log into the fire sir!

Did some research and check this Mr. Ortiz :

Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system by blocking adenosine, a neurotransmitter that normally causes a calming effect in the body. The resulting neural stimulation due to this blockage causes the adrenal glands to release adrenaline, the "fight or flight" hormone. Your heart rate increases, your pupils dilate, your muscles tighten up, and glucose is released into your blood stream for extra energy. Voila… you now have the caffeine buzz.

Whoops! I'm well aware that he knows this and I'm hoping it's not just professional ignorance.
