The Worst of the Best is one of my favourite series on fangraphs. Here are the wildest swings of the first half.

#5 Matt Cain to IPK.

#4 Matt Reynolds to Ichiro

Image

#3 #heathbellexperience to Jean Segura

Image

#2 Cody Allen to Rajai Davis

Image

#1 Matt Moore to Colby Rasmus

Go Jays, I guess.

The Wildest pitches of the first half is even better

I knew that Colby would be #1 the second I saw that post on Fangraphs. I was watching that game when it happened and it basically just left me sitting there in disbelief. Didn't know Rajai would be #2 but it doesn't surprise me. At least he took a stab at the ball instead of just swinging as though the pitch was right down the middle.

I believe Ichiro actually thought he could hit it on the short hop.

Go grab Wily Peralta now before he shows up on tomorrow's probable list...

Last 5 starts
30.1 IP
3-1 W/L
1.19 ERA
1.19 WHIP
23 H
13 BB
4 ER
25 K

....oh and he gets the Marlins on Sunday. Should be a good spot start on what could be a pivotal final day of a H2H week.

Anibal and Strasburg feels like a good way to start the second half. Just need my offense to keep up the torrid fire theyve been on.
