You're kidding right? It's one of the prettiest in the bigs imho.
No, I wasn't kidding. When I think of pretty swings, I think of long extensions with very fluid motion all the way through the zone (Griffey, Hamilton, etc.). Utley's swing is the exact opposite of pretty, IMO. But as I said, it's damn effective, so it does have its own natural beauty, it's just not pretty in the normal sense.
