Major League Baseball pitchers are getting really good at being able to do some really goofy things with a baseball and by goofy I mean throwing utterly ridiculous pitches that are making professionals hitters look silly.

The latest example of this came earlier this week when Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Blake Treinen showed off a 100 mph sinker that looked as crazy as it sounds.

A 100 MPH SINKER!!!

He threw that pitch for a strike against Angels lefty Jared Walsh, who just stood there and watched in awe as it went by and danced away from him for a called strike.

On Wednesday night, in the third period of Colorado's 9-3 (!) win over the Arizona Coyotes, MacKinnon got into it in the corner with Conor Garland.

On Wednesday night, in the third period of Colorado’s 9-3 (!) win over the Arizona Coyotes, MacKinnon got into it in the corner with Conor Garland. After a tussle, Garland’s helmet came off, MacKinnon picked it up and fired it at Garland’s face.

Look at this thing.

I don’t know what you’re supposed to do with that pitch. I got no clue! But I do know cool pitches like that are really great for baseball because they are so fun to watch.

Last year we saw Dodgers pitcher Dustin May go viral with a 99 mph pitch that defied gravity and had everyone just laughing at it.

Now we have Treinen throwing that sinker and yeah, I think the Dodgers might have some success this year.

Not everything, though, has to be about speed. A few weeks ago I raved about Orioles pitcher Mickey Jannis throwing a beautiful knuckleball that couldn’t have been more than 65 mph.

I don’t know what you’re supposed to do with that pitch, either, besides likely tipping your cap to the pitcher for being able to pull off such sorcery.

2021 MLB expert predictions, award picks: Can Dodgers win another World Series?

  2021 MLB expert predictions, award picks: Can Dodgers win another World Series? No MLB team has won back-to-back World Series titles in 20 years, but the reigning champion Dodgers head into 2021 as the favorite in October.But things won't come easy for the Dodgers. Just two hours down I-5, the San Diego Padres may be baseball's second-best team and primed to challenge their rivals for years to come. Elsewhere in the National League, the Atlanta Braves had the Dodgers on the ropes in a seven-game LCS and their stacked lineup will be out for revenge.

It feels like this is going to be a fun baseball season and I can only hope that pitchers keep throwing ridiculous pitches like that sinker and that knuckleball.

Because man are they fun to watch.
