Wakefield

The Boston Red Sox

Postby Rickey Sez » 20 Jul 2006, 10:42

Wait a minute... how the hell does Tim Wakefield break a freaking rib? He throws a knuckleball? Did he fall out of bed? And can't he still pitch with a broken rib? He's a freakin' knuckleballer.

I wish I was a little bit taller. Wish I was a knuckleballer.
I'd like to see a pair of boobs that would prompt me to write home. Maybe Scarlett Johannson level quality? "Dear Mom and Dad, I saw an awesome rack today. They were perfect. Everything else is fine. Love, BD79."

The espn article said that he doesn't know how it happened, then implied that it could have happened while he was sleeping.

Either that or he got drunk and fell down.

I was referencing former (Red) Sox pitcher Paxton Crawford, who allegedly injured himself falling out of bed while having sex. Must've been the HGH.

But Wakie can have a few beers. He's earned 'em. And sometimes we get a little hurt after a couple. Shit happens.

Yup, Wakefield's a juicer, I knew it. Probably he was Crawford's hookup.

I was dissappointed that Wake isn't on the roster for their current series. I will stop and watch him pitch an inning, regardless of what I'm doing.

I thought it was impossible for Wakefield to get hurt...

It's his back. Too much golf for ol' Wake.

I'm surprised you don't see more knuckleballers around. That's a good living if you can get it.

Yeah, but who teaches you how to throw a knuckleball nowadays?

I wonder what special skills you need to be a good knuckleballers... I assume it's more than just practice.

Yeah, I'm sure it's more of a God given talent more than practice, but still... I'm sure no Little League or high school coach is looking for these guys either, which is a damn shame.

Maybe Tim Wakefield will open a Knuckleballers camp when he retires...

I wonder how much the rarity of knuckleballers increases their success... I'm sure not many hitters have faced many pitchers outside of wakefield, so it must be a hard thing to adjust to.

If I ever have a son that's left handed I'm gonna throw myself a party, btw.

This is how you throw a knuckleball. I fucked around with a knuckleball from the time I was about 10 until I quit playing baseball at 18. It never really worked right consitently. I would throw it well for two or three starts, then have it never work for the rest of the season. Of course, by well I meant it would work four or five times out of the ten knucklers I threw .

Looked it up on Wikipedia, apparently the White Sox have a knuckleballer...

found this quote: "Like some cult religion that barely survives, there has always been at least one but rarely more than five or six devotees throwing the knuckleball in the big leagues... Not only can't pitchers control it, hitters can't hit it, catchers can't catch it, coaches can't coach it, and most pitchers can't learn it. The perfect pitch." -Ron Luciano, former AL umpire
