    Default Why not model the most effective swings?

    Albert had (has) a great swing for a big man. Bonds was very productive, had great rhythm and timing (but juiced up) and is not the swing a 10 to 13 year old girl can do. Cabrera was super. Judge really isn't that good statistically when it comes to strikeout/BB rate.

    BUT,

    Who is the posterboy for a most "effective swing" in baseball? Why not take the smaller guys who absolutely must be doing something right to both generate that kind of power and have a much lower strikeout percentage. Say Mookie Betts, Jose Ramirez, Jean Segura or Scooter Gennett to name a few. These guys deserved to be modeled. Littler guys in the top ten in OPS.

    Every major league ball player has an effective swing. That's why they're in the bigs. They're all different

    Griffey Jr was effortless

    Jim Leyritz, Marv Throneberry and Ike Davis disagree.

    Do not argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
