It helps that the catcher is calling the pitches via signals. So he knows the intended location and the probable break. Sometimes the catcher and put her get their signals crossed, and the result is usually slapstick-amusing.

"Clouded vision?" "Indoctrinated?" Sentences with multiple clauses? The fact that WH stooges can't even manage to imitate a man with a five-phrase repertoire is... not surprising. (note to stooges: you want "that" instead of "which" for the restrictive clause)

Very late, and very dramatic. Put it this way. If that pitch didn't break AT ALL, it would be hard for most major leaguers to hit. They'd have to be guessing both fastball and location to really tag it. But coming in that fast, then moving that much, that late? No chance.

First, it's 99 MPH. That's insane. Typical 2-seam velocity for a MLBer is probably around 89-90 MPH. Dustin May is throwing it a 99 MPH. Bananas. There aren't too many guys touching 99 with their four-seamers. So his two-seamer is insanely fast. And the break?

The later and more dramatic the movement, the harder it is to hit. The batter sees the pitch moving, makes a very rapid caculation of expected path, swings..... and the ball doesn't end up where it was supposed to be. Whiff! So why is this one so great?

Four-seamers don't break much. They stay mostly straight and stable, so their advantage is that they move faster, generally, than the 2-seam. The 2-seam is usally a few MPH slower than the same pitcher's 4-seam, but it will have late movement.

YOU GOT IT! A fastball is thrown as a four-seamer (fingers across the "u" shape part of the seams) or a two-seamer (along the narrow parallel seam area). Because of spin (physics, etc.), a two-seamer will travel straight and then break to the right (for a righty).
