I need to get some video up soon, but just thinking about hopping and staying real tall on tippy toes of the rear foot, and dropping into a plant (see SW door frame drills) that is 20-30 closed to your target line but neutral to your feet/spine/body has simplified and consolidated all these small swing thoughts I used to have to piece together. The key is to really wait to drop from the hop and settle into the front side before you swing.

It was in your form thread where I realized the idea of a RH batter's power zone being to left center and relating it to what we're trying to do. If that batter wanted his power zone to be to center field, he'd have to hop up and move his whole stance closed, relative to the pitcher (your intended line).

That's what so great about having a forum, and productive discussion (not argument). The more we can talk about this and bring different analogies in, the more it will resonate to more players.
Well said. I'm going through the same things.
