You left out the part where “We’ll teach you to close your eyes before hitting the ball to maximize flailage.”

I’d honestly like to see a serious attempt to break down Pence’s mechanics. It seems like he’s probably got everything going in the right direction as the bat comes over (in this case, well over) the plate. Much like a goofy golf swing like Jim Furyk’s, I’m guessing his core mechanics are sound, and the flailing is just window dressing.

I know, that’s not fun. But still, it could be educational.

It’s like he throws and swings likes he has football shoulder pads on. Then his lower half has to flail to generate torque. I wonder what he would look like as a pitcher.

“In fairness, Hunter Pence’s overall style — something I refer to as the Anthropomorphic Bag of Marbles — looks like it would produce zero value on the baseball field, so what do I know?”

Is he a Bag of Marbles or Bowl of Jell-O? Pick a side; we’re at war.

I love Hunter Pence. He’s got it all: goofy and good, wily and wise. Runs like the wind throws like (as a previous contributor said) he’s wearing shoulder pads.
