    As for casting, I still say there are better ways to correct this problem. I'm coming from the assumption that I must get a kid to learn how to stay connected to have a high-level swing - and casting is just one of many forms of disconnecting. So rather than fixing "casting", I just work on connection and fix casting as a side-effect.
    That would be my call as well.

    Richard...We all concede that you are most likely correct with how you are describing what Pujols is doing. I think the thing these guys (and me included, sometimes) wish you would do, is to NOT use Nyman terms to describe whats going on. "Foward by turning" is very, Nymanish if you will and many of us don't understand what you mean.

    .
    Credit where credit is due regardless of Nyman's engaging personality. Forward by turning is pure Jim Dixon.

    That picture of Pujols is beautiful. No wasted movement, essentially his stride has already been taken and he's just chillin'. Sure, the left heal raises off the ground as a timing/slight weightshift mechanism, but dang it's pretty.
    That's not what I see. I see a big momentum development and transfer.

    I'm no Nyman apologist. I probably was, once. Things change.

    That said, he has many times characterized his swing - some of which are better than those shown here - as equivalent to about an 11 YO in terms of efficiency. He's 58 (or so), started late, and it is what it is.

    But he makes a point that it is NOT high level.

    Mine isn't either, but I think I am a reasonably effective instructor.

    Watch that and if that doesn't give you some insight into the nature of the beast then nothing will

    I haven't bothered to watch the videos to see. Given that he's got the equipment front and center (and the lights on them annoyingly flashing into the camera), I'd bet he hopes to sell more equipment with it.

    The clips seem to run at about two frames per second in order to keep the file size low, so there's nothing I can do to slow 'em down. I did string together four of the swings into one small file, downloadable here. By looking at all four, you may get a better picture of what he does.
    Is he tring to sell the equipment or the swing? Or both?

    Oh, for Gwynn it's not BS, but it's not going to work for anyone not named, Gwynn, Carew or Suzuki. Glad to hear that Bochy's a rotational guy, even if an Epstein guy. On the other hand, you won't now need to know where your "scap" is, as Epstein prefers counter rotation to scap loading, if I understand his training correctly.

    Can you send me the actual clip of that, so I see more than the frames its showing? It doesn't look like he has a load of any kind in this clip. Am I wrong?

    So what happens if you get called up to the Padres and they run Tony Gwynn over to work with you? Just tell 'em you found a better hitting guru. This guy!

    Bruce Botchy is an Epstein supporter and Epstein and Gwynn are adversaries, so I doubt that Gwynn will be around teaching guys how to hit singles.

    Also note the different result of back elbow lowering in HG vs Pujols.

    When Pujols elbow comes down,the bat is moving/circling/uncocking.
