In the classic Manny clip you posted in #10, I agree he did not land on a very bent knee, but later in this swing he bent it abt 30 deg (per below) then straightened before contact - maybe it was an off-speed pitch so he delayed the movement, I don't know.

So, I looked to see what he typically did in his swing and here is what I found in the 1st 3 clips I located. (of course these degree measurements are not exact but they are representative for this purpose)

Now I know what you consider a very bent knee. Thanks

When I tell people to do dry drills and land on a 'very' bent knee, and they think they have it down, they are still barely crimping their knee at first :)

So I may have to go with super, mega or nuclear. :)
