>>> Matt Williams had excellent shoulder rotation and hit fastballs on the outside part of the plate very well. When he ran into problems, it was chasing breaking balls out of the strike zone. Have many clips of Matt, and I think you are right about Gant, but wrong about Williams. <<<
It was in the late 1980ís when I charted the swings of Matt and Ron. At that time they both had great shoulder rotation for middle-in pitches. Although I never charted Mattís swing after that, I did notice from looking at his swing a few years later, that he appeared to be generating greater early bat speed than before. Therefore, your observations may very well be true. But, when I charted his swings, it was as I described.
