    I'll be interested to see how this swing performs, because what I see in the clip is a very top-down swing. Notice how his hips haven't rotated at all at heel plant. It's almost as if his shoulders are pulling his hips around.
    Are there any game swing clips of him around? I can't imagine he's been as successful as he has with the swing we see here?

    Hey XXXXXXXXX, I see from your private little playground site that you are now calling me a moron for this post. What a pathetic little world you live in, where you comb the web for all the sites you've been banned from and then insult everyone on your site.

    The only game swing I can find is this:


    What I don't see in the game swing that I see in the training one is the bulk of the upper body loading movement occurring AFTER toe touch. Nor do I see anywhere near as much of an exaggerated loading in the game swing.

    I have an idea... POST a game clip side by side with this training clip. I may be wrong, but I don't think they'd be the same. But I'm open for the test. Are YOU? Or are you only capable of slinging insults to everyone?

    All I know from watching several clips of Colabello is that he is a very fine hitter. Great rhthym and eye-hand coordination. Good size and bat speed. Nice balance. Solid concentration. No fear. The guy can hit.

    I assume his limitations in baseball lie elsewhere: fielding, running, etc.

    That's a good looking swing. I notice it's from '08. If this is indicative of his current game swing he's in good shape. Was Tewks working with him then? If not I hope the game swing and cage swing aren't before and after swings. If so the A's coaches can help him find this stroke again. I wish CC luck as he pursues his dream of playing in the Show.

    Thumbs down

    What a great little scam TM has going. He can post all the hitters he wants next to pros and despite obvious visual differences, he can simply claim that "They're identical under the hood"! Obviously, none of us can prove this, so he never has to concede on anything he ever says. Wow!

    Is this the post where you summarized what you didn't like about his swing?

    While at the time I thought is was excellent (and still do for certain scenarios), I now see it as still promoting "connection" that is too early in the process. If he were to add one more thing to the "hand action" in that drill, I think it would really set it apart from where it is now.
    Mud, sorry to bring up an old thread, but finally got around to reading the Whole thing. You mention adding one more thing to this drill with the "hand action". Can you explain what that is? If you rather shoot me a PM so as to not start up this thread again it would be appreciated.
