Yu Darvish top 10 moments
By David Cash
1. Making batters look confused, silly, off balanced and made
If there is one thing that Yu Darvish can do, it is throw batters off. He’s able to switch from a 94 MPH fastball to a 59 curve ball with ease. What is even more amazing about those pitches and the varying speeds is that most of the time they are strikes.
Here are a few clips of Darvish making some amazing pitches.
