There is a serious problem....

SDS

There isn’t a serious problem, but I selfishly wanted your attention so you could give me input:

I hear all the time: “that guy’s swing is butter” or “I hate his swing”...

1st, can someone define what a “nice swing” versus a “horrible swing” is for cards?

2nd, if it is subjective, then can someone tell me what the benefit would be for anyone who doesn’t have a quick swing?

Lastly: It’s obvious to me that Cobb and Honus have quick swings and it seemed evident to me that Piazza and Schmidt have slower swings. Who are players with slow swings versus quick swings? I’ll take as many as you can list!

I can’t help you, but nice job. 😉

Ripken has a shite swing allegedly

SDS

Best way to do it is play conquest and mess around with your line ups. I have a problem hitting with guys like Altus, cause he is short. Also players like judge who are tall I struggle with. Feels like I can’t get to balls high in the zone.

Lets make it simple, what you want is a short compact two handed swing. Do your homework and find the players with it.

Gotcha. Mondesi, Steve Finley, Blackmon come to mind then.

Didi yellich and Thames have sweet fast swings

Its all a matter of preference, there might be some guys that everyone on the forum raves about that you can't hit with but then you realize you tear the cover off the ball with someone everyone on the forum hates. Don't change your team because of what other people like.
For example, Mike Piazza gets dumped on a lot because he has a slow swing. Personally, I don't mind it and love his swing now because all he does for me is hit bombs.

SDS

For me, personally, length of the swing is irrelevant. I think the stride is the most important part for me. Every card is different, you just gotta use them and find what works for you.

Some of my favorites are:

Mantle, Moustakas, Jimmy Rollins, Nelson Cruz (LS not FB), Giambi, Sheffield, Lindor, Ian Happ, Stanton, Donaldson
