> I have over 30 clips of Pujolsí swing and like Bonds and Williams, he also has a hook in his hand-path at contact. That does not happen with an elongated swing. Furthermore, his back-elbow is no more extended than Bonds or Williams when hitting like pitches to the same field.

Jack. I believe what you say, but can you post the clips? To the naked eye it appears Thome, Bonds, and even Williams have more uppercut dynamics than Pujols. Granted Pujols hits more line drive homeruns like Dave Winfield and Schmidt this could cause one from the naked eye to feel that he is doing something different. I am basically trying to account for the difference in the trajectory of the launched hits. Even if hitters are doing much the same things as you preach, if the result of the hit results in radically different types launched trajectories it stands to reason that one will not benefit as much as the other. Therefore it is logical that we must find other factors to explain the success of one hitter vs. another.
