I suggest a "better" more comprehensive analysis. Watch Rose's lead hand just as it gets to the front of the plate.
In this swing, that is where you can actually "see" what has been happening since "go" (launch).
Also, the angle isn't the best to see this in the Rose clip, but you can clearly see it in Justin. Watch what the lead elbow does. Add that to what you can see the lead hand doing (actually both hands are doing it but you can "see" it in the lead hand in this clip).......and analyze what that lead elbow action means to the hands.
Then evaluate the CHP. With a rotating body, almost every swing path is circular since those hands/arms are attached to that rotating body. It's really almost a given....short of the real elementary amateur swing. Mlb hitters do something else.....something critical to their success.
