The Nastiest 32 Pitching GIFs of 2018

Chris Sale almost had a quadrant of his own, also landing a fastball to go with his two sliders in the Nastiest Pitching GIFs of 2018 Tournament. His first slider entry was actually the final pitch of the postseason, sending Johnny Hustle himself, Manny Machado, and the Dodgers home with another World Series loss. No. 2 came during Sale’s midseason fiesta. This, like the pitch to Machado, is one of those back-foot sliders your hear about, but hope like heck you never have to face.

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.
