I love you man, but I am not with you on this. (Is 99% agreement OK?)
I think the elbow drop to the hip supplies the initial torque/power to move the bat head.
You convinced me that the hands are not otherwise used for power in the swing - the core/legs provide the power. Then you try to convince me that the teeny muscles in the hand create bat speed at the start of the swing. Seems out of sync.
Help me out here.
