The Nastiest 32 Pitching GIFs of 2018 – Round 2

As much as this Chaz Roe slider looks great on its own, Xander Bogaerts really makes this GIF. When I see that hop I instantly think of “two hops this time!” from the Cha Cha Slide—which is the worst song ever. But then that’s going against Yangervis Solarte‘s best impression of a dreidel (Happy Holidays!) against some ched from Noah Syndergaard. Ched with some run that is. (Which in any other setting is a recipe for disaster.)

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.
