    If Murray declares for the draft, he WILL go in the top half of round 1 simply because a team will have to draft him that high if they hope to sign him - also this may be the weakest draft for QBs since 2013 when EJ Manuel was the first QB off the board at 15

    Fascinating. Despite that huge stride from an extreme stance, Ruth's head stays on plane through his entire swing. Gehrig's is way more compact and fluid than I expected, although he had some awful swings in this video (the BP pitcher might have been to blame).

    I believe that's the case. Ruth took many pitches in that video, and the ones that he did swing at, looked to have been thrown in terrible locations.

    In addition, it seems that Babe may have told him about it at the 2:13 mark.

    I never realized how big Gehrig was. He looks very thick and solid.

    I suppose that I thought he looked like Gary Cooper, lol.

    Yeah, Gehrig was listed at 6-foot, 200 pounds, which was pretty strapping for those days. (But not as strapping as Ruth).

    Hank Greenberg was 6'3, 210lbs.

    He was solid.
