I don't know if I'd put Sheff in with these other guys. Sheff might be the hardest, most violent swinger in the league, and he definitely can hit those laser shots with the best of them. But pretty often I've found myself saying "stay up, stay up" when he hits them, which kinda defeats the whole "no-doubter" thing. :-D

LMAO, dude that's so awesome. What's up, Cerrano.

I wish I could've seen Mantle in his healthy prime. :-°

As pure no-doubters right now, I'd say both Sexson and Dunn.
During the recent speculation about Dunn moving, someone suggested he could take a run at Bonds' 73 jacks if he ended up in Coors. I disagree, since he never has balls die at the warning track anywhere. It's strikeout, walk, or into the next zip code.
Conversely, the cavernous Safeco ain't nearly big enough to hold a ball that Sexson gets all of.

Bonds all time. I haven't seen too many cheapy ones from Arod either. He hits them everywhere and very, very far.

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.

And size/weight of the bat

Ortiz was the first that came to mind. Another is Jim Edmonds. When he hits one, there's usually no doubt. His rarely squeek over the wall.

Dunn, Sexson and Vlad.

Has Dunn ever hit a cheapy?

Of the ones not mentioned, for this season ... and for fun, by position assuming one qualifies:

C - ???
1b - D Lee, he's hitting the trot this year half way to first 80% of the time, Big Tex
2b - Soriano, he knocks the Schmlegel out of them
SS - Tejada's are cheap by no means
3b - Aramis' are rarely close to being pulled back, Arod
Of - Griffey some this year and surely in the day

I'd say Dunn, Sexson, Ortiz, and Vlad. When those guys get ahold of one there is absolutely no doubt it's gone.
