Fastball: Hard to say.
Curve: Zito?
Changeup: Santana, Moyer (maybe not so much anymore)
Sinker: ?
Slider: ?

Fastball: Clemens

Slider: Randy Johnson, starts behind the LH batters, unfair
Changeup: Johan Santana
Sinker: Beckett
Splitter: Hudson/Harden

4-seam Fastball: I can't really narrow it down to one. Depending on health and from start to start, it could be anyone from Randy Johnson to Eric Gagne to Pedro Martinez to Rich Harden (or Carlos Zambrano, Bartolo Colon, etc.)
2-seam fastball: Carlos Zambrano
Cut fastball: Mariano Rivera
Curve: Barry Zito
Changeup: Johan Santana
Sinker: Brandon Webb
Slider: Francisco Rodriguez
Splitter: Roger Clemens (Maybe Tim Hudson if Rocket is gone)
Knuckleball: Tim Wakefield

You are over looking a pitch. I bieve only two people throw it: Eric Gagne and Guirrilo Mota.

Vulcan Pitch: Eric Gagne

Knuckleball: Tim Wakefield

If I remember correctly, Wakefield started a season 15-1. A knuckler. Wow.

Curveball: Zito

It's a real pretty pitch. It hangs in the air for so long I'm surprised it's not hit more often.

Fastball: Oswalt- that guy is only about 5'10'' and he's throwing around 96 with movement.
Curve: Zito
Changeup: Santana, Gagne
Sinker: Zambrano- more of a power sinker, but really nasty.
Slider: K-Rod
Forkball: Contreras
