The Nastiest 16 Pitches GIFs of the First Half of 2019
This is a matchup for the ages. Two of the best pitchers of the decade, using their nastiest pitches to induce whiffs. First off, it’s Chris Sale, who uses his absurd slider to induce a swing-and-a-miss from Gleyber Torres. But, is it enough to take down Clayton Kershaw and his signature 12-6 curve? One man alone can’t make the call, so we’re relying on the wisdom of the crowd to decide this matchup.
