    Any knuckleball pitcher looks good when on.

    They just look REALLY bad when they are off.

    Funny thing is, I thought I watched him pitch before and I don't remember him being a knucleballer. I think he just sucks so bad it makes him look like he's a knuckleballer.

    I could have sworn they were saying on Baseball Tonight that he wasn't really a knuckler or something, but it was something he was looking to try out, and had worked on it. But who knows, when that "other league" comes on I'm not really listening.

    He used to be a regular pitcher, but for some reason decided to try the knuckler this season, maybe because he just wasn't very good. It would be very surprising if he managed to make himself useful to a major league team as a knuckleballer this quickly. He's probably more of a project now than help, whether he gives up on the knuckler or not.

    I bet he would love to go to Safeco, Petco or some pitchers park......Going from Texas to GAB can't be high on any pitchers list.........

    I didn't know he was a knuckler. I always learn something here at the Zone.
