For those of you that still check ESPN for some baseball info, the cover story is on Kyle Drabek. They basically say that he'll fall to the mid-first round due to makeup concerns. They initially gloss over the fact that he's 5-11 and throws 94-95.
This is probably the first time I've heard a (mostly) positive review of a pitcher under 6-2. Most of the time, the review focuses on the fact that the guy's 3 inches shorter than "ideal".
I know we've had this discussion before, but I still think that not drafting/believing a guy can be a successful pitcher under 6'2" is rediculous. I don't know if Drabek will be good or not, but I know that there's plenty of good pitchers under 6'2 right now in the majors. Glavine, Oswalt, Maddux, Hoffman, Wagner, Street, K Rod and Kazmir are all listed at 5'11-6'.
I still contend that it doesn't matter how tall a guy is, if he can pitch, he can pitch. An extra 2 inches probably wouldn't have made Maddux a better pitcher, and there's more guys on their way that will be good without the 2 inches to be "ideal".
