He's just got one of those swings that doesn't work, kinda like how a lot of people don't like Ripken or Mike Schmidt's swing
I believe you're prob correct, Sky-King does seem to have a long exaggerated swing plane.
.But, how does SDS set their ratings then? I do realize there doesn't seem to be a lot of science to that, but I would think it isn't just random either.
I think you're looking at it wrong, just because a card is rated in the 90s, doesn't mean it's going to play well. SDS is setting ratings based on career (well, in most cases, FS notwithstanding). But that doesn't mean the card is gonna play great in-game.
Stats have their place for sure and do matter greatly, but swing type is just as important imo. It's why I can have over an 1.000 OPS with Vidal Brujan but can't hit a lick with Kingman or Schimdt. It's not something I can easily explain, but people that are smarter than me point out that longer swings just don't work for the majority of the player base.
