fn 1: I swear to god, if I ever have children I’m teaching them to throw a knuckle ball. It is the most devastating pitch in baseball when it’s working. It saves your arm so you can pitch for 20 years and so few people throw it that you’re always going to be a rare commodity. No team is used to facing it so you quickly become the metaphorical knuckleball of starting pitchers and that, my friends, has value. Teach your kids to throw a good knuckler and you’ve taught them to fish forever.

    Wakey-poo’s knuckler had us fooled for 4 straight innings. The problem was inning 5. Once the opposition figures out how to wait on it and watch it float in there, bad things start happening.
