Watched Dickey throw today. What can I say, he throws a mean knuckleball. It kinda pisses me off, actually. Every time I watch him I think to myself, “Dirk, you could still be throwing right now. You could learn that pitch and try for a comeback. You could sit down with Dickey and have him teach it to you and then make a run for it. Then you could write an even better knuckleball book than his!” Think about it, GF DIRKY — WHERE I WOUND UP.
Then I realize that throwing a knuckleball is MUCH harder that it looks. MUCH. It’s such a feel pitch it’s not even funny. In fact, I’d be better vacationing in Mexico and loading up on steroids and making a comeback since the gains would be more immediate. The knuckleball is like chasing a golden snitch by comparison.
