Can't wait to see this guy pitch every 5th game next season.

Incredible...I hope that we have an experienced catcher aka J. P. Arencibia for next year!!

@Doug

J. P. Arencibia will be the regular catcher, but we picked up that back-up from the Mets in the Dickey trade. I think he's the Dickey catcher who catches his knuckler.

Just looked it up. The Dickey catcher is Josh Thole.

That's amazing. I'd love to learn how to throw a knuckle ball, even half-ass, just for fun.

I just hope this is a better success than Tom Candiotti or Phil Niekro. I'm betting it will be.

Put that on a digital billboard = instant ticket sales.
Got one of those views for each type of pitch?

That is bananas! How is that even possible!?! I can't stop watching it!

I love how even the catcher closes his eyes and hopes he caught it. Not the greatest technique, I'm thinking.

I gotta figure out a whole new way to mic his ball. It doesn't travel at the same speeds as a regular pitcher so it will greatly impact my mic placement and how I will capture the sound.

Hmmm....

Beautiful! Use to love watching Tom Henke side arm the pitch.
