yes, if that was what they were arguing about then, Cameron would be right. But they also need to take skill into consideration, yes you can have short (under 6 ft, since we seem to be using 6 ft as the barrier) pitchers who are finesse pitchers more so than power pitchers. but all skill aside, a taller pitcher will have more advantage than a shorter pitcher.

why do you think they have the mound raised, to help the pitchers.

it is harder for a batter to pick up the ball coming from a taller pitcher, also the taller pitcher has more of a downward motion than a shorter pitcher...

some were in there you can get pieces of logic... otherwise its just rambling

Yeah, I was unsure what they were arguing about.

The thread about pedro wasnt asking 2-5 years now what will happen to pedro, it asked about THIS SEASON. and everyone pretty much agreed that pedro will do very well in NY. No one asked if his arm will fall apart in 5 years.
