Would it be fair to say that, at least in our era, Bonds would be the greatest linear hitter in baseball?

Even when a few weeks ago Bonds was quoted as saying that when he his he "throws the bat at the ball", I didn't realize there was a relationship between "throwing the bat at the ball & the hand path."

So, either Bonds lied when he said he throws the bat at the ball, or Jeff and Melvin are wrong when they assert that "throwing the bat at the ball" results in a linear swing?
