Kimbrel's Pure Dominance helped by not just his fastball

2

This is a great article that talks about the games best and worst sliders. It ranks the pitchers, who throw their slider atleast 10% of the time, and gives us the best and worst slider from the starters as well as the relief guys. I do not think it will suprise you whoch relief pitcher has the best slider in the game. Also, this same pitcher only gave up an oponents BA of .099 against his slider!! Absolutely fascinating stuff, and it makes for a great read and reminder just how lucky we are to have Kimbrel. Also, from the same blog if you look, you will find the best and worst 4 seam fastballs. Which you will find another Atlanta Brave, but I bet it isn't in the category you would expect and I bet it isn't the player you would expect either!!
