Non pitcher I would go with Hunter Pence. His upper body is ridiculous looking and he has the most unorthodox swing I've ever seen.

Pitcher I would go with Ben Sheets. His numbers speak for themselves:
366 AB, 10 R, 28 H, 1 2B, 0 HR, 7 RBI, 16 BB, 180 K, .077 AVG, .115 OBP, .079 SLG, whopping -44 OPS+ for his career

I was gonna say Hunter Pence or Craig Counsell. Counsell had his own batting stance on MVP Baseball 2005, and Pence looks like an octopus in the batters box. He's all arms and legs.

I agree he looks like a retarded Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Ichiro doesn't make it look too pretty.
Dominate is a verb. Dominant is an adjective.

I definitely agree on Johnny Damon. He has the shortest, slappiest, most feminine swing in baseball!
