    Tim Is a great guy with a good heart, but his time as a pitcher was 10 yrs. to long.
    In his career he led every negative statistic, how is that productive ? Not to mention
    leading the world in splashing meat balls on the Mass. Pike.
    Thanks to Ben for ending the agony. Team will be much better off in the long run.
    Good luck in retirement Tim, you will do fine.

    If you click the players tab we’ve got oervyene’s height up there. Too late for absolute reach, but will keep it in mind for the future.

  5. Bharat says:

    yea, hand timed is not very accurate. good thing you guys used lesras. form is another thing that would help 40 times drastically people practicing for the combine obviously practice their 3 point starts to shave multiple tenths of a second, but you guys probably werent training for this test for months on end. raw athleticism is a good way of putting it.how did you guys measure reach before the vertical jump?
