This can't be. We all know that Heyward is generational, and those guys came up during his generation.

Something's not right here... :-?

How about Utley? He's not short but he's probably under 190 pounds soaking wet. His short compact swing is not pretty but very effective for him.

The main part of Utleys success is his VERY quick hands and ability to turn on inside pitches. He's 6'1 right around 190 so i really wouldnt consider him small either. He;s just a very gifted player that plays the right way

Yup, but they do randomly spout up when they're in the right place at the right time under the right tree ;-)

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.

This seems to be an interesting thread that could be debated again.
