SEEING DARRYL Strawberry swing a baseball bat is an exhilarating experience. Hit or miss, it's a majestic moment when he extends his forearms, allows the wrists to pronate and completes the follow-through.Take a picture and preserve it for posterity. This is the personification of precision, power and, certainly for Strawberry, new heights of prosperity.There's no heresy involved when it's said flat-out he's the smoothest, easiest-to-watch swinger since the classic stylist, Ted Williams. And, to this point, he has only scratched the surface, offering a mere tease as to what he's truly capable of doing.
