What is the Stanford Swing?



I was looking at Mets prospect outfielder Sean Ratliff and saw that he went to Stanford. Ratliff is a big guy who hits the ball hard and has hit 14 HR this year for the Savannah Sand Gnats with a .282./.326/.484 slash line.  Ratliff was taken in the 2008 draft and was profiled as a power hitter. So I'd like to know more at the fabled "Stanford swing" that I've seen used on this site before, to know more about Ratliff as a prospect. Can someone describe it? Could anyone show me a big leaguer with the Stanford swing? Any videos? Is it good or bad?
