That is just silly. i know you dont believe that
Actually, it's not silly at all. Very few major league pitchers throw a quality curve ball these days. When I grew up the curve was the primary breaking pitch and almost all starting pitchers threw it and had a pretty decent one.
With the rise of the slider, splitter, cut fastballs, and the variety of breaking pitches, very few major league pitches throw curveballs at all, much less a decent one. Curve balls represent less than about 10% of all pitches these days.
