How has Felix Hernandez remained one of baseball's best pitchers despite significant velocity loss? He's done it thanks to an overflowing repertoire and plus-plus movement on his pitches.

On Friday night against the Twins, King Felix in the eighth inning snapped off a vintage curve that left Aaron Hicks utterly helpless and hopeless at the plate. So in celebration of bad-ass breaking balls and in the spirit of restaurants with one-word names, let's serve this particular hammer curve three ways.

Two ...

Three ...

Art is what that is.
