Confession: Sometimes I miss Bill Baer. I follow him on Twitter, which means I see a lot of cat pics and know he’s afraid of spiders. Also, he’s a feminist, which <3.
Anyway, during the Fall Stars Game last night, he was unhappy that the announcers were describing guys 5’9″-5’11” as “short.” (BTW, no, you can’t tell the difference between 5’10” and 5’11” from the announcer’s booth, boring commenter dude.) I thought that was average — isn’t it average? Maybe it’s athlete-short as opposed to regular-short? I wonder what athlete-short is for women? Can women be athlete-short? Aside from pitchers, wouldn’t being 7′ be kind of a liability? Thank god I have things to do today besides googling athlete height all day.
101 days til pitchers and catchers report.
