Rob Friedman, aka Pitching Ninja, is a hero. He provides gifs of excellent pitches and posts them to his Twitter account @pitchingninja. It is one of my favorite accounts on Twitter. His most recent gem? This gif of new Cardinals prospect Matthew Liberatore “stealing someone’s soul” with this devastating curveball. You gotta watch the whole thing closely to the end.

(Feel free to forget the the next pitch was down and in and the hitter was ready for it, pulling it up the first base line for a triple.)

Liberatore was pretty excited to be featured by Pitching Ninja:

Liveratore wasn’t the only Cardinal that had been featured recently. For fun, here is a gif of Projected Opening Day starter Jack Flaherty:
