The Nastiest 32 Pitching GIFs of 2018

This is the type of moment that’ll stick with Carlos Sanchez the next time he faces Jakob Junis. When you can’t lay off a pitch that hits you, what are you supposed to do? It’s a pretty helpless feeling. At least Miles Mikolas was more gentlemanly about the manner in which he made Chase Headley look stupid against his nasty hook. And this curve from Mikolas is old school 12-6. Good luck getting good wood on that one.

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.
