    Could be. From what I gather, it's possible guys were throwing the split-fingered fastball well before Bruce Sutter made it famous. It's just that previous alleged throwers likely considered it merely their own variation on the forkball.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    And he balks every time he pitches from the wind up. You can't stop and rock back and forth in the middle of your wind up.

    And I am glad the Reds don't have to face him. In that one Youtube video it was showing his speed, he averages like 145, that's not even fair.
