  1. Sue (or anyone)-

    Wondering about the size of Eury Perez. Saw him in the Futures Game and he look waaay smaller than the listed 6′ 180lbs. How close to listed size is he?

  2. Sec. 138 — don’t know about his size. The reports out of Hagerstown are that he has a rocket arm. At his age, he’s got at least one more growth spurt in him.

  3. I saw him in Hagerstown and didn’t think of him as a Mighty Mite like Whiting or Curran. There are plenty of guys that have been 5’10-11″ and 170-175 lbs and had productive major-league careers.

  4. Hey… For some reason strange things are hapenning with your site layout. The borders of the text are overlapping. I didn’t do this yesterday. I don’t know if it’s on my end or if you’ve made a change… Just thought you might want to look at it. Thanks! Samara Canty

    • Tried it in IE, Firefox, and Chrome and things look fine. Haven’t messed with settings since the site ownership was transferred to me in July.
