SS a position for "big men". LOL Since when?

Carlos Correa is ONLY 17 years old and is 6'4 190lbs. You think he's still going to be 190lbs 5 years from now?

Look at A-Rod and Jeter for example.

LMAO
Thr kid is 17 years old! By the time he's 22, he'll weigh 200+. Stop saying the shortstop position is for big men. That's just retarded. The position rarely has any power hitters.

Oh, and A-Rod was 6'3 190lbs when he got drafted. And i hope you know that Andrus gained 10lbs this past off season. Nice try.

Allan Trammell was 6'0 and weighed 165 pounds and managed to win four Gold Gloves and three Sliver Sluggers in his career at Shortstop.

He wasn't a "big man" at all and did just fine. The stereotypes of having to be a certain height or weight are stupid.



Notable Seasons
1990: .304 AVG, 14 HRs, 89 RBIs, .377 OBP, won a Sliver Slugger
1988: .311 AVG, 15 HRs, 69 RBIs, .373 OBP, won a Sliver Slugger
1987: .343 AVG, 28 HRs, 105 RBIs, second in MVP voting, won a Sliver Slugger
1986: .277 AVG, 21 HRs, 75 RBIs
1984: .314 AVG, 14 HRs, 69 RBIs, .382 OBP
1983: .319 AVG, 14 HRs, 66 RBIs, 30 SB, .385 OBP

Yeah, not too shabby for a non-"big man".

It's a new game.. I'd like to see a player like him compete in the MLB now.

Jose Reyes is one of my favorite short stops in the game right now and he is 6'0 180lbs. Your height and weight doesn't determine if you will be good in the MLB or not. No offense Kelzzy, but you sound silly as hell.
