When I graduated from High School I was 6’2″ and weighed 160#. After one summer of basic training, I put on 20# od muscle, and then over the next few years kept getting bigger. A long skinny frame can certainly bulk up as it matures. It isn’t necessarily the rule, but when you train as much as these guys do, you can’t help but bulk up.

If he doesn’t, then I would call that an exception.

This quote makes me think there is an extreme problem with how scouts “project” players. If they are basing it on the fact he’s 6’3″, they’re ignoring the rest of his body’s makeup. I don’t see Goodrum ever “filling out” or “maturing” to a point where he can’t play SS. He’s skinny and lanky, and those types just don’t pack on serious muscle (I know, I’m one of them), and certainly not to a point where he’ll be 6’3″, 200+ lbs. -> http://twitpic.com/917osv
