Barry Bonds aka John Dowd should not have Sheff's batting stance. Sheff swings his bat way to violently, it would not look like Barry's real stance at all.

Some corrections (or at least in my opinions)

Corey Patterson - Upright

Aramis Ramirez - Piazza

Jason Varitek - can't be Sierra, since he has a bit of a open stance than sierra does

Kevin Millar - Sheffield

I'll probably post the Jays at some point, whenever i get to look around for their stance..more likely wait for the season to start, or maybe spring training if it ever broadcast on my tv

It would be Glaus + slight Crouch + slight bat waggle(not as much as Sheff's).

Patterson- His stance is not the upright one. His stance matches Glaus pretty much.

Ramirez- Piazza works.

Millar- Sheffield does not even come close!

It's Sheff's stance, only the bat waggle is not nearly as violent...

Yep, guess you didn't watch the world series that much :wink: he does have his stance, just not as violently like Donut said :mrgreen:

And corey patterson..i guess i'll go with what you said since i haven't quite seen him play, just the screen shots.

Score One for me...

Bonds stance is impossible to replicate in MVP 2005 by the way...the closest stance to Bonds is Everett and Glaus...

For Varitek, the Open Batting, Sierra, or J. Gonzales stance would be good.

Cabrera and Dunn are spot on.

Dunn was an original one and Cabrera was also in the original post....

The Unbolded ones are from the original post and the bolded ones are new and/or updated.

Last time I checked J.D. Drew had A-Rod's stance...was it that?

I'm not sure on that...

Also, Edmonds should have something like Upright, Griffey or Boone.

J.D Drew's default stance is A-Rod's in the game already.

I think Edmonds stance in the game is upright.....

For Barry Bonds, definitely use Eric Chavez. Closest thing I've ever seen to Bonds' stance.
