The Nastiest 32 Pitching GIFs of 2018 – Round 2

Well, there’s one thing that’s guaranteed from this matchup: Blake Treinen will win. Yeah, he’ll lose, too, but once you win in the postseason—which is essentially what this tournament is—you’ll always be a winner. So there’s really no way Treinen can lose! Couldn’t necessarily say the same for Chase d’Arnaud and Mitch Moreland, who were on the wrong end of Treinen’s fastball and slider, respectively. Though, Moreland helped the Red Sox win the World Series, so he can’t be a loser. So that means d’Arnaud’s the real loser in this round, making way for Treinen to advance.

Actually, "not" might be the right answer here.
