Whenever Ortiz cranks one it's as good as gold.

Rey Ordonez use to crank em. :-b

Today, I'd have to go with Ortiz, though some of Manny's shots are pretty well stung as well. I haven't seen enough of Sexson's shots to compare.

Im just gonna go out on a limb and say Barry Bonds. How many times has he hit a ball and then got in his wheel chair and have someone push him around the bases cuz he know its in the bay.

Seriously though, every single one of Barry Bond's steroid filled hits are NO DOUBTERS. HE HITS IT HIGH, HE HITS IT DEEP, HE HITS IT.... OUTTA HERE.

Is it possible that Dunn can swing faster than Pujols?


It's entirely possible that one player can swing faster than another. Realize, however, that the speed that the ball comes off the bat is a function of the speed of the swing as well as the speed of the ball, the mass (weight) of the bat, and the rigidity of the bat (batter's grip on the bat mainly).

More importantly, how far a ball travels is based solely on three things: speed off the bat, projection angle, and environmental factors (wind, altitude, etc.) - assuming all balls are of the same shape and weight.

So yes, he could be swinging faster, but if the ball is disappearing from your TV or computer screen faster on a consistent basis, it will necessarily go further on average (assuming we factor out ground balls and pop-ups).

edit: fixed quote box


That's not true. It's based on magic.


Is there a website that ranks players according to magic?

I'd say Sheffield but you never know if it's high enough. I'm going to refer to a quote from David Ortiz to Kevin Millar when he (Millar) had a Homerun stolen at the wall.

I'd have to say Sheff. He hits line drives as far as other guys hit towering fly balls. They're like laser beams going out of the stadium.

Ortiz, Dunn, Wily Moe (when he plays), and Sexson really seem to hit mammoth shots when they get their pitch.

Playing now- Dunn. When that big boy gets his club-like arms extended... :-°

Last year- Bonds. I've seen Bonds crank some home runs at Bank One Ballpark I just couldn't even believe 8-o

Sammy Sosa in his old days... when he hit one you knew it was gone.

Delgado always gives me that feeling of "Oh, expletive" the second he makes contact.
