Question based upon Bonds video:

If 98 degrees of shoulder rotation produces 250 degrees of bat rotation, then is there basically a multiplier effect where a very slight difference in body position, rotation, etc., produces a much larger difference in the resulting swing - especially early batspeed, etc?
