Public-Service GIF: Yu Darvish’s First Swinging-Strike

As a service to the public, the author presents here footage of Yu Darvish‘s first swinging-strike of the season — a ca. 90 mph cut fastball to Houston third baseman Brett Wallace from, like, 20 minutes ago or something (box):

As a service mostly to himself, that same author presents footage of the next pitch, as well — of Darvish’s second swinging-strike of the season, a ca. 86 mph slider that compels Wallace to how small he is relative to the giant and cold multiverse of which he’s a negligible part:

I swear, that first pitch looks like it cuts in AND then sinks down. Almost as if the ball was trying to miss the bat all on it’s own.

Those are some rather begrimed ball heaves.
