Yu Darvish is one of the top young pitchers in baseball. The Texas Rangers ace is off to a great start this season, compiling a 4-1 record and a minuscule 1.65 era.
The following GIF may explain why he’s off to such a good start.
OK: if your brain didn’t instantanly combust, lets break down what you’re looking at. Contrary to popular belief, this is not magic: this is Albert Pujols’ entire at-bat against Darvish in one convenient GIF.
What makes this GIF spectacular is how Darvish uses the EXACT same delivery and EXACT same arm slot for each pitch, yet not a single ball ends up within a foot or two of another.
Have a great day!
