The Best Pitch in the Game

John Walsh at the Hardball Times has a load of fun with the pitch-f/x system in an effort to identify who has the best single pitch in the game. Articles like this, my friends, is why being a baseball fan today is so much better than being a baseball fan at any other time in history.

Of course I disagree with the results, in that no pitch can paste a pathetic palooka like a certain hurler's powerful, paralyzing, perfect pachydermous percussion pitch. I'll cut Walsh some slack, though, because I'm pretty sure the 1946 Polo Grounds didn't have the pitch-f/x system installed yet.
