Re: who would be good canidates for adding the knuckleball?
Owings would be an ideal candidate, IMO, but he's probably too far advanced to do anything more than fiddle around with it. In the minors, I'd think Watson, Lehr, LeCure, and any AAAA lifer would try to find the grip and let it rip.
Really, what do you have to lose, both as an organization and as a prospect at that point?
Of course, from AA up, the Reds are stacked as starters. This would be a particularly difficult system to try and learn in.
