    I recall the virtually unhittable Orel Hershiser in the 1988 WS.

    Unreal.

  • DarinDarin Posts: 3,320 ✭✭✭✭

    Randy Johnson by far.
    I was never a fan of the teams he was on, but if he was pitching on TV it was must see TV.

    Phil Niekro was always fun to watch for a few innings of knuckleball.

    Maddux (pinpoint, with some help with the calls)
    Blyleven (that curve was nuts)
    R Johnson (who in their right mind would want to face that?)

    Yeah, I uploaded that KC icon in 2001

    fiveniner- Is that a list of pitchers' names that you don't know how to spell? If so why is Whitey Ford there? You know
    how to spell his name.

    Greg Maddux - masterful, he threw fastballs at lefties hands and they tailed on the inside corner. Never overpowered anyone, but could hit the mitt regularly. Best fielding pitcher as well ⚾️

    Fernando Veluzuala,

    I watched almost all of his games.
    Try standing on one leg, rotating your body 90 degrees to throw to home plate, whilst rolling your eyes looking into the sky. Stop there, I'm getting dizzy.

    What a pitcher. Helped the Latinos forget the land grab that is Chavez Ravine.

  • Sam McDowell, Luis Tiant , Bob Gibson, Sandy Koufax, Gaylord Perry, Nolan Ryan, Juan Marichall ....

  • thenavarrothenavarro Posts: 7,497 ✭✭✭

    Pedro Martinez. Masterful, and wily at times. Seen him pitch twice at Jacobs Field, now Progressive field in Cleveland. I remember he drilled Sandy Alomar on the behind in retaliation- perfect placement. Cleared both benches, just posturing as I remember...Pedro issued a warning.

    Verlander
    Pedro
    Tiant
    Lonborg
    McDowell
    Wood
    Lolich
    Blue
    Scherzer
    Johnson
    Ryan

    Fidrych was easily my absolute favorite to watch. He was a breath of fresh air for his short stint as a pro. He filled Tiger Stadium on a bad team and sold out many away games. He was must see TV
