>>>Your "Rose" clip in no way proves your theory.

The hips and shoulders moving together in no way proves the existance of shoulder rotation.

It is simply "your analysis". <<<

Hi Teacherman

I agree, readers should not just accept my analysis. They should study the clip and then decide for themselves if your assessments below or my analysis is most consistent with what they see.

Note: I am still envious of Mike Epstein’s question: “Do we actually teach what we see?”

(Teacherman’s assessments)
“If you keep trial and erring, you will learn that "shoulder rotation" is not a part of a high level swing

“You see....the hips rotate. The shoulders do not.” -- “Shoulder rotation leads to two and only two options.
(1) Bat drag....doing it slow enough so you can "stay in there
(2) (2) Pulling off the ball....when you really "get after it" to hit the ball hard.” -- ...is simply incorrect and not supported by video of the best players.”

“Shoulder rotation occuring at the same time as hip rotation simply can not and does not work. For several reasons. Not the least of which is the "simultaneous" rotation is a great example of "slop" or "slack" in the swing. HOW can you rotate both and keep them synced for an efficient slopless swing.”

And, how his latest gem:
“The hips and shoulders moving together in no way proves the existance of shoulder rotation.”
