Rangers ace Yu Darvish is one of the most fascinating pitchers in baseball today. It's not just that he's dominant -- 2.73 ERA with an MLB-best 236 strikeouts -- it's how he does it. His arsenal of pitches is seemingly endless.

On Friday night, he broke out this ridiculous 61 mph curveball against Trevor Plouffe of the Twins:

Plouffe swung before the ball even crossed from grass to dirt in front of the plate. It's a Bugs Bunny cartoon -- he could have swung and missed three times on one pitch. Ridiculous.
