I gotta go with Krod and Santana.

But honerable mention has to go to El Duque and his 50 MPH curve ball. I've seen him make some damn good hitters swing themselved into the ground.

Greinke is virtually unhittable in MVP 05. If you use him vs. another human player you can throw the changeup all day and they'll be lucky to make contact.

I just watched Wood strike out Reyes on a slider a couple of innings ago where Reyes almost fell leaning forward. With all the injuries, one forgets that his stuff (when he's going right) is among the most filthy.

I agree with this. Pedro in his prime had 5 out pitches that were each distinct and staright nasty. He had "stuff" and contol.


No doubt about it.

Pedro is just money.

Here's a name that hasn't been mentioned yet in this thread, I don't believe: Dustin McGowan.

He has a great fastball, curve, and change. I'm becoming more and more convinced his stuff is actually better than Burnett's (AJ has a great fastball and curve, but he doesn't have confidence to throw his change with regularity, and when he does, it isn't really that good).
