In response to softlaw2's comment:
You were already rebutted, with another poster chiming in as your bubble popped. I've noted that you believe RA is going to have a big year in the AL East
DG said nothing to help you out....
You said all knuckleballers were the bottom of the barrell..
I said that RA Dickey just won the CYA so clearly your logic is flawed.
You responded that RA Dickey throws a "variety" of pitches therefore he doesn't rely on a "bottom of the barrell" pitch.
i blew up your spot with facts and proved that he threw mainly a knuckleball with high success. He only threw a non-KNB 16% of the time and did not fare well. On top of that i proved he only threw 2 effective pitches in 2012 whereas a starter with a "veriety" of pitches can throw 4-5 well.
Your cunning retort to that checkmate was that the many curveballs he threw were wrongly classified as KNBs. Which anyone who has seen a KNB and a curveball before knows that they are vastly different and can be distinguished from eachother from a mile away.
DGs response has done nothing to help your case that:
A) Dickey is a bottom of the barrell pitcher
B) he throws a "variety" of pitches
C) his 2012 season was a fluke
so yes, i am still waiting for your rebuttal. unless you'd just like to admit defeat. chump.
