What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
I don't know how you top this .gif. Honestly. It has ghosts, balls, shadows, pooholes, curves, sliders, fastballs, AJ Pierzynski,.....I guess you could top it with the other 3 or 4 pitches he has. Sick. Nasty. Glorious. Yu.
Add tacos. They make everything better.
URL to gif directly. And damn, I agree, that is the most amazing gif in history. How the hell si anybody supposed to make contact against that?
Is it bad that I sat here and watched that gif for like 10 minutes straight.
Darvish looks utterly dominating. Actually I don't think dominating even describes what he did there.
Per Newberg, this gif was created by the same guy who made the awesome Yu strikeout compilation video on YouTube. Mad props.
The best part is that Yu's release point is nearly identical on each of these.
NO, the best part is reading all of you GUSHING about it.
Nondescript you know you're a baseball degenerate when that's the first thing you notice (it was the first thing I noticed)
That Dshep guy is amazing at creating GIFs. He's a valuable member to LSB.
Dammit I forgot tacos? They make everything better. Thanks for the direct link BZ.

I now personally and definetely wanna see Daru ptiching against the constantly-excellent NY lineup (Ichiro Suzuki included) and also engaging in a pitching duel with Verlander or Max Scherzer (not to mention fights with Detroit's batting order #3 and #4). Ultimentely and hopefully, a classic pitcher's duel between Daru and Stephen James Strasburg in WS. A must-see game if it ever comes true.
Oh me to-wouldn't that be grand.
Tacos don't make anything better...
I too found my self staring at this .gif for what seemed like an hour, truly amazing what Darvish can do. The scary part about that though is there are still 3 or 4 pitches left out of that .gif he has even more than that to offer.
Yu Darvish is... the most interesting pitcher in the world.
"I don't always strike people out, but when I d—wait a minute, yes I do."
add tanaka and teach him a cutter or sinker and you will have a fantastic all nipon 1-2 punch. Yu may do for Texas what Nolan did initially, make it a great place for japanese players to come to. Would be great to tap into Japanese baseball for some pitching.
Here's the same .gif that DShep made but this time it has the Pitch posted and the speed
also here is comparison with CJ Wilson
DUH we 've seen the gif --YAWWWNN
