I could think of :
Gil Meche throws hard?
gil meche has gas... i've seen him get it up to 97 on an ESPN Sunday night game last year... his breaking ball is a deadly compliment to it too...
as far as additional starters... oliver perez and contreras are decent mid-high 90s fireballers
I'm guilty for the same crime as you, but at least I knew about it
"Who are the hardest throwing starting pitchers" I guess you missed the title of the thread.
But anyway, I pictured a guy named Gilbert who averages just over 6 K/9 to be a soft thrower like Ted Lilly. I guess I was wrong. Does Jamie Moyer throw that hard too
And whoever said Robb Nen, yeah a healthy Nen can throw pretty hard, but his glory days are over and he can barely crack 90 MPH now.
An interesting note: When Roger Clemens pitched for Toronto and we had the MPH (Yes, MPH, not Km/H) reading for every pitch on the JumboTron, he refused to allow them to do that for his pitches. What a bastard. He was also in a commercial when he was first traded here that showed him hitting 120+ with ease on the radar gun and then 2 guys standing around saying "You think we should tell him it's in kilometers?"
