Josh Osich ended the first round with the largest margin of defeat as voters decided his Fastball deserved the nod after inducing a big whiff from Andrew McCuthen. On the flip side, Noe Ramirez had one of the toughest challenges and edged Rich Hill in one of the closest battles on opening day. These two pitches are different sides of the same coin – one is deceptive heat that falls off the plate, the other is a deceptive breaking ball that finds it way into the strikezone. Both earned a strike, but which one was filthier?
