Shane if there's nothing for you to say about the topic then shoo, no need to be here.
I realize not alot of people understand the knuckler enough to throw it well, it takes effort, you could go get 2 different pitches instead. But, think about how effective a knuckleball is once it's practiced enough. I mean if Wakefield can get a no hitter into the 7th and a shutout through the 8th with it. Or if he can be 3rd all time in wins for the Red Sox by throwing mostly knuckleballs then he has something there.
The knuckleball when thrown correctly is the most effective pitch there is. So many people have talked about how hard it is to hit.
John Kruk: "I'd rather have my leg cut off then do that all day you just hope it hits your bat in a good spot"
Pete Rose: "I just took 3 swings and sat down I didn't want to mess up my swing"
Bobby Murcer: "Hitting Niekro is like eating jell-o with chopsticks, sometimes you get a piece but your usually left hungry.
The only problem you have with it is when you put a little too much rotation on from time to time it gets hit. Really though if you have good velocity on it with little to no rotation then it's a good pitch.
