I've watched a lot of pitchers over the years and it's definitely one of the best I've ever seen...mostly because of how he frames it compared to his fastball. The location is just sick.
Personally I think Santana's change up is a tad bit overrated. It is a very, very good pitch so lets not take it the wrong way.... but its not the best pitch in baseball and it gets talked about like it is. He may be the best pitcher in the game, but that doesn't mean he has the best pitch. Volquez changeup is sick on many different levels, the difference in speed, the location he can throw it with, the tumble on it.... then there is the fact that his fastball might be coming at 97 MPH, oh wait, thats just an 81 MPH change that looks just like it. Crap.
