It was relatively easy first rounds for our next two pitches, with Alec Asher’s poetic Fastball garnering more love than Luis Garcia’s explosive heater. However, it wasn’t nearly as much love as Jose Berrios got with his Curveball, blowing the competition out of the water as it earned over 80% of the vote. Both pitches are of the front-door variety, stunning their respective batters for a satisfying strike three, but does the crafty breaking ball or the smooth Fastball get your vote?
