Before there were sinkers who were the top pitchers in DD?

SDS

I remember Sale was deceptive…..Chapman, Vida, Feller, Ryan and the knuckleballers? Sound right?

SDS

If my memory is right then in 2019 it was Grienke, Hamels, Blyleven, Bumgarner, Sale and Grove all of which did not have a sinker.

Sig Kersh had a sinker

Sinkers have always been busted people just didn't spam them until the last couple games. Orel Hershiser has been at the top for a long time

Vida Blue. I think in 16/17.

At least we have a couple months before the knuckle ballers get released 😂

SDS

Klubers award card last year was filthy. I was terrible against him.

Pretty sure back in like 16 he didn’t have a sinker. Could be wrong though. Either way back then a sinker was basically a slower fastball similar to DeGrom’s 2-Seam now.
