The three longest swings I have seen in person are Terrance Long, Pete Rose Jr., and Javy Valentin.
The most impressive bat that I have had the great fortune to watch (On TV) has been Chris Davis of the Rangers. Great plate coverage, Oppo power, awesome bat speed. Looking forward to watching him in an already potent lineup.
Those long swings don't even cut it when they are young. Love to see a player with good bat speed and a good approach.
