A friend and I were talking about the best swings in baseball and the majority of hitters were lefties. When we said nicest, we meant most asthetically pleasing, not necessarily most productive, although they seem to go hand in hand. Adrian Gonzalez started off the conversation, but it quickly covered such hitters as Robinson Cano, Chase Utley, JD Drew (the ball might not go anywhere, but it is a pretty swing) and Joe Mauer.
Of course the recently retired and HOFers of years past entered the mix as well.
So I’ll pose this: Who has the nicest right-handed swing in baseball right now (active player)?
Please post your reply in the comments.
My answer at the beginning of the year would have been Manny Ramirez, but he is no longer active, so back to the drawing board.
