Courtesy of ZeroRadioGIFs comes some Steve Carlton "pitch porn" ...

Carlton, 329-game-winner and first-ballot Hall of Famer, was a famous practitioner of the slider. In the GIF above, however, "Lefty" appears to be victimizing Rick Monday with his sweeping curve, which he also used to great effect.

If it's any consolation to Mr. Monday, know that he batted a tidy .375 against Carlton in his career. This, though, was not one of his finer moments at the dish.
