The Nastiest 32 Pitching GIFs of 2018

Xander Bogaerts had himself a big year and took a major step forward for the Red Sox. That being said, Chaz Roe made it look like Bogey had seen a slider in his life prior to this offering (No. 1). But you can you knock Bogaerts too much with that little hop? Or maybe that’s more reason to poke fun? Either way, that Roe slider faces another (No. 2) that Edwin Encarnacion expected to turn into a trot around the bases. Sorry, Edwin, Polly has to wait another day (or pitch) before it gets its stupid cracker.

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.
