I believe he was the first pitcher posted in the first post. Haha, I missed Brandon Webb on that same post. :*)

Well, Votto just recently did hit 3 Homers in one game and I'm sure it has happened before him. I'm not really sure what you're saying though. :-S

Brandon Webb is obviously like the best sinkerball pitcher in the majors...can't believe he hasn't been mentioned yet. Also, i'm pretty sure Wang has been really successful with his sinker. Garland throws a sinker as well, though not as effectively as either of the aforementioned.

I've only seen Volquez pitch once briefly but his fastball had so much movement that I'm gonna go ahead and call him a sinker baller of sorts.

Although his fastball does have a lot of movement, it does not sink, it actually tends to rise at times since it is a 4-seamer. I think you're talking about his amazing change-up that looks to sink.
