I like watching baseball a lot just to see players and skills. Yu Darvish has got to be one of the most interesting pitchers out there.
Darvish is good, but, he's not close to Petey's level yet.
Wow. That pitch at 1:18.
Pitching is the only part of baseball that I ever really got into, it's just mind-blowing the stuff that those guys can do.
Watching slow-mo pitching analysis is pretty awe-inspiring too.
Starts around 2min:
don't know how to embed a video ?
Anyone seen this gif of Darvish's release point on 5 different pitches? It's absolutely insane how much control this guy has. I've seen him pitch in person 5-6 times over the last two years, it's always fun to see. The last time I went he K'd the first 5 or 6 batters he faced.
I love that knuckleball gif. I could watch it all day.
Aroldis Chapman. 105mph pitch (he hit 106 the year after or something)
