I'm pretty sure that horse isn't getting up again.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

I heard that if Cole Hamels wanted to, he could throw the best sinker in the league. He just doesn't enjoy throwing it.

Also, I believe Wang throws a sinker every now and again.

I know he's been mentioned, but I'm watching Masterson pitch right now and he's NASTY. He features the sinkerball, but he can get the fastball up to 92-93 and he throws a pretty good slider too. Granted, this is against the Royals, but that aside the action on his pitches is damn impressive. Makes me wonder if his recent AA struggles were based on his trying to work on his secondary pitches, because in both starts up with the big club, he's been dominant.

Derek Lowe and Roy Halladay throw a pretty good sinker

Guys, can we stop this. Let's just start a list of sinkerballers. I'll post the name of a guy who has yet to be mentioned, and everyone can just add on:

Brandon Webb

See, that's the problem. Everyone's spending too much time goofing around and not enough time listing sinkerballers. I'm putting my foot down and starting the list myself:
