The Nastiest 32 Pitching GIFs of 2018 – Round 2

This one, maybe more than any matchup in the Sweet 16, comes down to preference. Both Jose Berrios and Mile Mikolas chucked some sick-nasty curves in these GIF. Berrios’ has depth, but some substantial sweep to it. Mikolas’ is pure 12-6. No amount of flowery text or hyperbole can impact this one, it all comes down to what you look for in a curve most. (Or who looks dumber, Neil Walker or Chase Headley.)

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.
