Great Discussion Guys,

I believe the points Paul Nyman was making is that the inward turn of the front shoulder is a consequence of loading the scapula of the back shoulder. Regarding the top hand torque: many people advocate “flattening the hands” early in the swing. In very simplistic terms, it appears that that is what these guys are doing. Pujols, Tejada and a few of the younger players appear to me to have a “modified” hands to the ball type of swing that nonetheless produces good power.

Here is a clip of Pujols: http://webpages.charter.net/nickkio/Pujols01.mpg
