Ken (Hawk) Harrelson - a former player, General Manager, and current announcer proposed an interesting idea. Why not hire a former knuckleball pitcher such as Phil Neikro or Charley Hough and create a knuckleball school for all of your struggling minor league pitchers (who would otherwise be released)? If just one of these pitchers becomes a decent knuckleball pitcher, you are ahead of the game. The beauty of the knuckleball is that it puts virtually no strain on the arm allowing a pitcher to pitch in relief one day and make a spot start if need be as soon as one day later. This is a huge luxury for any pitching staff. What do you think?
