    Nice. Slutter is now my new favorite pitch. I bet it takes all five fingers to throw.

    That's a wholly evil pitch. I hope he can continue to throw it without tearing up his hand. I don't know how they don't have blisters if the way Schroeder described how the pitch is thrown is accurate.
    I'm just here for the baseball.
