Sorry for not clarifying this, I meant let's put together a list of shunk hitters.

Pitchers that report to camp smaller doesn't concern me, but shunk hitter do.[/quote]

why is that?[/quote]

Yeah, why is that. If this is about steroids, pitchers take them too, and not being on them could affect their performances.

I wish the Major Leagues published hatg sizes each year. That would be interesting to see.[/quote]

Hitters that lost a lot of weight or appear shrunk signal it is possible, I emphasize "possible", they came off steriods during the offseason. Reduced strengths from hitters tranlate into less homeruns and crapier stats. There weren't any 50 HR hitters last year, first time since '94 and I think a combination of overall better level of pitching and reduced steroid use (not softer baseballs) has something to do with this. Just my unprofessional opinion (for all you lawyers out there).

Pitchers that lost a lot of weight or appear shrunk, well to be honest I'm not sure how to treat this. Therefore I'm probably not going to put an asterisk next to Wade Miller's name for my draft day.

I read that Millwood lost a bunch of weight and is supposedly entering spring training in the best shape ever.

I also read that Helton has gained around 15 pounds.

Aaron Harang (P) Cin lost 15 pounds and 10 percent of body fat in the offseason, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. Harang, who is competing for a rotation spot with the Reds, said that he is stronger this year.


figured I would kick his name up there, Justin case anybody wants to keep track of "shrunken pitchers" too.
