Actually i did try and answrer is question which is why the blurb that I posted says Sabathia had the highest AL avg in 2003 and Schidmt had the highest NL avg. Just that I couldn't find anything for 2004.

# Billy Wagner in 2003 threw 159 pitches over 100 mph. According to those who record such numbers in ballparks across the country, every other pitcher in baseball legitimately topped 100 mph a grand total of 40 times. Think about that. Bartolo Colon was next, with 12 pitches over 100.

# For the "It's Good to be Bartolo Colon" segment on E!, Colon is listed as throwing the most pitches over 95 mph of any AL pitcher (636), and had the second highest average fastball velocity (93.4) to C.C. Sabathia (93.9). Kerry Wood (95.5) and Jason Schmidt (95.0) had the highest average NL velocity and were 1-2 in pitches over 95. In case you were wondering, Greg Maddux had the third slowest average fastball (85.4) of any NL pitcher.

Thanks, I didn't know Wagner had THAT much gas... the reason I brought this up was because me and a friend in my league had a debate about who we'd rather have, Harden or Wood. I said Id defintely would rather have Harden, while he would rather have Wood (he is a Cubs fan though). Then speed got into the debate and he said Wood throws harder than Harden and I was looking for somewhere to check this.

I agree with Wharfrat on this one. Burnett practically throws his arm off, He's clocked at 100+ this year. If only he didn't walk so many guys :-o

Another flamethrower is Derrick Turnbow, when you see him pitch you know it's going to be fast. He's also clocked at 100 this year. If he can find the strikezone with his heat, he's pretty damn good.

I know that Gagne has reached 100 before. Obviously not this year. Just a small caution though Bonds hit his 100 mph pitch out of Pac Bell (SBC) park.

Bobby Jenks was consistently touching 99 last night in his major league debut for the White Sox. Earlier in his Anaheim minor league career he reportedly touched 103. I know earlier this year he was clocked at 101 at Birmingham. Funny thing is that his fastball is not even his best rated pitch. Jenks throw a 86 mph spike/12-6 curveball that is unhittable. Like most flamethrowers location has always been an issue for Jenks. After last night's performance though, he's all the rage for Sox fans right now.
