    Re: Ronald Torreyes

    As also explained before, male almost always gain another 20 pounds in the next five years, then another over the next five years.

    In other words, if he were to age as is normal, Torreyes would be pretty much the exact size of Raphael Furcal and only a couple pounds below Pedroia and others.

    I don't know why you would "think" he'd be one of those 1-2% outliers, as the numbers are really in favor of him gaining some significant weight. Body frame has nothing to do with gaining weight. Only metabolism.

    And unless you know his doctor or have some kind of crystal ball, I cannot foresee how you might determine he's got the Golden Metabolic Ticket, so to speak.

    I think it because I have seen him and I just don't see his frame adding that kind of weight. I don't care what 98% of the average person does. He isn't average. He is shorter than average, skinnier than average and a pro athlete who is going to burn more calories per day than an average person will.

    Re: Ronald Torreyes

    Can we just leave the whole size thing alone and enjoy what this kid is doing?

    I am just going to concentrate on what he can do, hit the ball very well and play great D.

    7 walks
    7 steals
    6 strikeouts

    That is dumb. In a very good way.

    Rumor has it that all six strikeouts are examples of the umpires messing up.

    At that pace, if he has a strike called on him and he doesn't agree with it, I'd be inclined to take his word for it lol

    I just don't think anyone can know this. Sure he burns calories playing baseball, but he should realize this and be eating more. If he's gonna eat like a little kid and not put any work in then yes, he'll probably end up 140 pounds. If he spends his offseasons pounding food and working out, he's probably gonna gain some solid weight over the next few years unless he's some sort of gangly genetic freak.

    It is good and I really like this kid, but it seems like a guy with such a small zone should walk more. Wonder if he will at some point as he grows up.

    Re: Ronald Torreyes

    So the kid has a lightning-quick bat which helps make him a great hitter. I'm supposed to get excited about some 5-foot-7 second baseman in low-A ball?

    Good, because I sure as hell am!

    I think the guy likes making contact. Last time I was at a game he hit more foul balls than the rest of the team combined.

    Well, it's kind of hard to walk when you line every strike into center field.
