Tyler Glasnow’s Curveball and the Nastiest Pitches from 10/14

The nastiest pitches of the night in the AL and NL Championship Series.

Every morning, the We Love Baseball crew reviews the Nastiest Pitches from the previous day’s games in glorious high-definition GIFs. We want to bring you the highest caliber of nastiness possible, so if you see a nasty pitch, please tell us about it.

Tyler Glasnow‘s Curveball

 

 

Dropping out of the sky from about 70 feet high (ok, that’s a slight exaggeration but only slight), ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, a sensational 85 mph curveball from Tyler Glasnow to strike out Carlos Correa. The way pitching should be.

 

Tyler Glasnow‘s Four-Seam Fastball

 

 

If it is near-impossible to hit Tyler Glasnow‘s majestic curveball, then the alternative is to try and get the bat on this 100 mph four-seam fastball with the perfect location. If Alex Bregman can’t, we’re all in trouble,

 

Zack Greinke‘s Slider

 

 

It has been a bit of a rough ride for Astros veteran Zack Greinke in the postseason. However, this lovely 86 mph back-door slider to punch out Ji-Man Choi helped the Astros stay alive in the ALCS.

 

Cristian Javier‘s Slider

 

 

Rookie Cristian Javier had all day to watch the master at work before coming in for Greinke to throw two excellent innings, which included this diamond 81 mph slider to fan Manuel Margot.

 

Jacob Webb‘s Changeup

 

 

One of my favorite unheralded relievers from this season, Jacob Webb got some garbage-time action in the Braves’ blowout loss to the Dodgers—this beautiful 83 mph changeup to Edwin Ríos shows you what he is all about.

 

Alex Wood‘s Sinker

 

 

Formerly a starter, Alex Wood has been fantastic in relief this season for the Dodgers as he works his way back from injury—this 92 mph sinker was far too good for Pablo Sandoval.
