The Nastiest 16 Pitches GIFs of the First Half of 2019
Adam Ottavino’s Two-Seamer vs. Aaron Nola’s Two-Seamer
We featured Adam Ottavino’s slider in yesterday’s honorable mention, but Ottavino is back here today with a filthy two-seamer that just makes Leury Garcia whiff. He’ll be competing with Aaron Nola, who used his own two-seam fastball to earn the ire of Jeff McNeil, who was heated with the umpire after he felt he got a bad call. I have to say, as a Mets fan I can appreciate McNeil’s anger, but man, Nola does a great job of willing the pitch back over the plate for a backwards K.
