DOES SIZE MATTER FOR PITCHERS?

Postby CameronCrazy » Mon Feb 21, 2005 3:15 pm

my friend DK is trying to argue that size does not matter. How can this be. clemens has gone for so long because of his horse type body. and RJ just slings the ball
i must say that all colleges now discriminate against players under 6"0 tall
lsu will not take anyone under 6 (unless they are god)

Of course it does. Leverage.

I think you should make the poll question a little clearer. It doesn't really ask what you and DK were arguing.

Perhaps if you asked "Who would you rather have on your team: Pedro or Colon" you'd get an idea as to just how much size matters in your case.

well pedro is still better than colon. (colon is a head case, but this point could be argued for pedro as well)
DK was trying to say that pedro will last as long as rocket and that his body type does not matter

I'd say no as there are lots of large pitchers who don't throw amazingly hard (eg. CZam...) and some smaller pitchers (eg Prior) who can deliver some heat. Or could at one point? :-o

but prior is a large pitcher because he is tall (SIZE) and slings the ball

Smaller framed pitchers generally tend to put more strain on their elbows because of the usually complicated motion that accompanies it to get those few extra mph lost by their small stature. Watch Fossum's or Juan Cruz's motions to get a good example.

You really have no idea what you're talking about.

What I'm saying is that I'd rather have skill than size. That's what the poll question should be.

Brian Lawrence and Jamie Moyer are both bigger than Pedro, so IE your logic you'd rather have them.

Billy Wagner is pretty much the exact same size as Pedro.

Size doesn't matter.
