Nastiest Pitches in Baseball
I remember reading a while back that NY Giant pitcher Rube Marquard had somekind of pitch that did crazy things as it crossed the plate; sadly for him it was a hundred years ago, so he didn't make S.I.'s list
"Life was charmed but without politics or religion...the life of peace, the blurring between dream life and real life...yet, I think there was a trade-off somewhere along the line. I think the price we paid for our golden life was an inability to fully believe in love; instead we gained an irony that scorched everything it touched. And I wonder if this irony is the price we paid for the loss of god."
