If we're not only shooting for active players I'm surprised that nobody has said Jay Buhner.

It was a no-brainer because if he hit the ball it was going out. I'm not so sure his at-bats ended in anything other than strikeout or HR.

Bonds all the way for me (not just a homer pick).

McCovey Cove is a long way from the plate, and when he hits (or hit :~( ) them, they are in the water without a doubt. Bonds' HRs are the inspiration for my favorite homerun call of all time:

Jon Miller: "Bonds swings, and its gone!"

I think that sums it up.

Honorable mention: I recently saw Delgado crush one. It hit a lightpole in SBC park that was probably about 520 feet from home.

When Giambi does actually hit it out, his certainly fit the description.

I wouldn't really say Sheffield though; he hits so many line drive HR's that you just don't know if they'll be high enough. He hit one of those to LF Thursday and from the RF bleachers it looked like a double off the wall, but it just stayed up.

Dunn, Bonds (remember his WS HR against the Angels and Tim Salmon's lips saying "i've never seen a ball hit that far"?), Thome racks em out too.

come to think of it, Bonds' hits were no doubters.

I guess the "Bash Brothers", JCanseco and McGwire fit the bill as well. Canseco looked enormous when he was at the plate. It seemed weird bc he had a slight crouch and he still looked gargantuan.

After watching two Adam Dunn bombs tonight in person, he certainly wins this award.

To the names already on the list, I'd add Carlos Lee and Beltre. Some of Lee's shots literally disappear on contact, they take off so quick. Beltre's struggled this year, for sure, but when he connects the ball takes off like a rocket and goes 425+ feet.

"Nobody go deep like Big Papi go deep"

I disagree on Sheff. He's too great an extra base hitter to hit "no doubters." You definitely know when the Sheff cooks a pitch but you don't really know if it'll be off the wall or out.
