I remember when I was taught the knuckleball (only pitch I cna throw due to my right arm not being dominant enough over the left) and it is a pitch I could throw even with my blister problems.

 

Josh should learn this pitch as a way to help him deal with the blisters and Willis should learn it as a pitch he can use to keep hitter off balance.

no power pitcher in modern history has thrown the knuckler.

 

 

 

the knuckler is thrown by soft tossers for a reason.

 

 

 

dontrelle could maybe learn a screwball if you want a 'gimmick' pitch.

 

 

josh just needs to trust his stuff and mix it up.

 

 

change ups are good things.

This sounds like a good reason to put one in your bag of tricks...

but its an extremely difficult pitch to

 

 

a) master

 

b) control

 

 

 

a change up is much more effective for a power pitcher because it accomplishes the same goal if thrown properly and its a hell of a lot easier to control.

Das if I can control that pitch, why not DW or JB?

tim wakefield often cannot control his knuckler.

Cause he tries to get too much of his hand on the ball. You don't need to get all your knuckles on the ball in order to control it or throw it right.
