Don't tell that to Tim Wakefield and his 200 career wins ...
Dickey's brand of knuckleball might be a fluke, but I don't think so. It's unlike anything most hitters have ever seen. A 78-mph knuckler? Forget it. As long as he can continue to throw it well and control it, we'll continue to see sub-3 ERA seasons from him.
