"Dirty," "filthy" and "devastating" are as good a group of words as any to describe pitches from this eclectic group of strikeout maestros.
Whether it's a hard slider catching the paint or a looping curve that will buckle the knees, these are the guys who have us shaking our heads as they send batter after batter back to the dugout in frustration.
Of course, there are so many great strikeout pitchers in the game. As Bleacher Report's Zachary Rymer pointed out, strikeouts are on the rise.
So please offer up any obvious exclusions to this list in the comments section below.
