Manny still has the best spread and most of his HR's are no doubters.

Utley and Sizemore are very similar. Everything they hit out goes to right field. Both have short compact swings with great timing and basically hit line drives for homers.

As I suspected, the hit tracker for Mike Lowell is very telling. Every homer he hits is to the shortest part of the ballpark in left field. I can't believe pitchers put it in his small hitting zone so often.
Dan Uggla is similar to Lowell but with more power. Likewise Burrell and C.Lee, everything goes to left field.

tex does hit some opposite field though, regardless of switch hitting. he drove a lot of HRs to right center as a right handed batter in arlington.

He hasn't hit as many this year, but Justin Morneau usually hits a lot of his homers the other way.

Unlike most switch hitters, Teix has equal power from both sides of the plate. Guys like Berkman and Chipper have far more power from the left side.
