        It isn't so much about their ego, but especially for up-and-comers, being labeled as overly small can put a quick stop to the cash flow.
        In the sport where height truly matters (supposedly, anyway), the NBA, I've seen Michael Jordan jump from 6'6", 180 lbs to 200 lbs. I'm guessing people didn't want to hear of him being frightfully skinny. However, he hadn't looked like he'd gained any ounce since the relabelling.

        I think that 5'7" is about as short as the "shortstops" will allow themselves to be seen as.

        I remember once I'd seen some male model's card, which read "5'11-1/2 inches". Everyone out there knew he couldn't be that, since he'd just add 1/2" to make himself 6 ft tall. Once we met him, he was about 5'9"-5'10" at the most.

        Oh well, so much for truth in advertising. Whatever happened to the days of "Wee" Willie Keeler? He, of the 5'4-1/2", 140 lb stature, coined the term "hit 'em where they ain't", which is how he'd explained that a man of such diminutive size could get so many hits. Hey, brains, not brawn.

        I think he's an FA this season. If so, how long a contract would you give him, and for how many seasons? How much money would you offer him?

                    Coming from someone who never posts more than 10 words in a post beyond spitting out undefined stats as if they were gospel, I think something so basic was in order.
