The Nastiest 32 Pitching GIFs of 2018

Aaron Nola had himself quite the season in 2018. He’d be the best pitcher in the division, by far, if he wasn’t going toe-to-toe with Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer, the only two NL pitchers to gain more votes in the NL Cy Young voting (with deGrom obviously winning, deservedly so). However, Nola’s movement is up there with both Scherzer and deGrom, as well as anyone else in baseball, and this sick fastball is prime evidence of that. His heater goes up against a Dylan Floro fastball that moves just as viscously, but off the plate and out of the reach of Freddy Galvis.

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.
