The Nastiest 32 Pitching GIFs of 2018 – Round 2

This is a tough one. On the one hand, you have Chris Sale dotting up 100 MPH, back when he was dominating everyone and their cousin in the middle of the 2018 season. On the other, you got Chris Sale striking out the scrappiest, no-stone-left-unturned-iest player in all of Major League Baseball, Manny Machado, to clinch the World Series. Take out the implications of the latter pitch and it’s nearly impossible to pick between these two.

Nick pitched at Northwestern University from 2011-14. He firmly believes the answer to every count and situation is a changeup — probably because he only topped out at 91. Nick runs the GIF Tournaments at Pitcher List. If you see a pitch that deserves recognition, let him know on Twitter @Nick_Friar. Maybe give him a follow, too? Or not. Actually, "not" might be the right answer here.
