Tallest Bullpen Ever?

I may have mentioned this before sometime.

The Jays started the 1999 season with seven pitchers in their bullpen. Two of them were RHP Robert Person, who was 6'0", and RHP Peter Munro, who was 6'2". Obviously, neither of these men were midgets. Yet they were dwarfed by the other five relievers on the Jays' staff, all of whom clocked in at 6'5" or taller.

Who were these five pitchers? No fair looking it up.

(To give you some idea: you know one of them quite well; you probably remember two others pretty well and were particularly fond of one of them; you probably forgot that the last two even existed.)

By comparison, here's how this year's bullpen looks:

Rauch 6'10"
Camp 6'0"
Zep 6'1"
Frasor 5'9"
Janssen 6'3"
Villanueva 6'2"
Dotel 6'0"
Perez 6'0"
Purcey 6'4"
Francisco 6'2"
Richmond 6'5"
