But you just wrote, “Then focus on both – the role of the bottom and top hands working together – but always applying opposing forces”

And you’ve always contended that:

Torque is the result of forces being applied to the bat from opposing directions.

In an oar lock only one hand is applying force.
And torque is not the exclusive result of forces in opposite directions.
Torque can be applied in only one direction to induce rotation.
