Jack responded to someone last evening regarding Manny Ramirez. To answer the question, Jack,made it clear to the poster that it was Mannys top hand torque that illustrated why he was able to hit the ball away, the way he did.

John, great hitters are not made by practicing wrong mechanics, they are made by practicing correct mechanics ... Jack's entire study was to identify and define the correct mechanics. If you don't believe it, so what. If you believe "see the ball, hit the ball," good for you. That is not the purpose of this site.
So we will keep the discussions of batting mechanics above the sophomoric level, and if you think it's overkill or not to your liking, there are other places to rant.
