Yeah he is gripping the ball in a similar fashion to a knuckler but he has way more command of it and he is throwing it a good 15-20 MPH faster than others have. This is more or less a completely new pitch and at this point hitters have no idea how to respond to it. The thing only gives 1 rotation of the seams and seems to move in random directions so hitters have no idea what to expect from it and he can throw it with velocity and with accuracy.

Ender, did you make your comments before or after you read today's article about Dickey on Fangraphs?!

I think everyone has noticed the velocity is what makes him special. If we are keeping track, I mentioned it on the first page, 6/18 at 8:03 PM.
Nice to see that article confirming what we are all seeing.

His last 4 starts have been pretty mediocre.
