    Who made this garbage list? What a freakin joke! I'd love to meet/post with the guy that made that terrible list. Luckily for him he just hides behind his computer!

    IMO Johan Santana has the best changeup in the bigs and yes, the best changeups do come from LHs.

    Santana's change up actually gets hit very hard and doesn't have a very high whiff rate.... at least this year.

    I freakin' love change-ups. It's the very first pitch that should be taught.

    Fastball/Changeup is still the best 1-2 combo in baseball.

    BTW, Chris Reitsma had the best change I've seen. You know that thing was coming and you still couldn't hit it.

    Wow! Good blast from the past memory. And I lean toward agreeing, (with some deference to Mario Soto though). Reitsma could frustrate a hiiter.
