In honour of today's starter, who has some heat behind his fastballs, this week's Thursday Morning Sporcle is all about Blue Jays pitchers that have heat.
The challenge is to name the Jays starter and reliever who had the highest average fastball speeds for every season from 2002 to 2014. In this case, the starting pitcher for each season must have pitched a minimum of 50 innings as a starter while the relief leader must have pitched a minimum of 10 relief innings.
Just click the green "Play" button below and start entering pitchers' surname. This week's game is freetyping (ie. you don't need to answer in any particular order) so feel free to slam out as many pitchers' names as you could think of in four minutes (if you dare type in "Dickey" or "Buehrle" you'll suffer terrible consequences). Happy typing!

Thanks goes to MjwW for the idea and for pulling the fastball speed data from FanGraphs!
