People are talking reach & length, not physically built.

Bader's reach is 74"
Goose's reach is 79"
Jones' reach is 84.5"

5.5 inches does not equal virtually the same size and reach advantage.

Goose has a reach advantage over most guys at LHW. Jones has a freakish reach advantage over ALL guys at LHW. Does Goose's reach give him an advantage, sure. Does Jones have an advantage over the entire LHW div? Hell yes.

Jones is a great athlete, dont get me wrong, but to discount the massive reach advantage is wrong.
