The Nastiest Pitching GIFs of the Third Quarter 2018

We have a pair of aces dueling in the opening round with Chris Sale and Max Scherzer facing off. First is Sale’s breaking ball that we will never get tired watching, here debilitating yet another right-handed batter with a literal “back-foot slider.” It’s incredible each time we see it. Meanwhile, we grasp a quick understanding of Scherzer’s success watching his changeup disappear off the plate with a mind of its own. We understand how each pitch has become elite in the majors, but only one can add a first round victory to their resume.
