Hi, new to the game here and having a blast thus far. Unbiased and completely horseless in this race, I have to say tecwrg, you come off a little brittle. I know now that pitch names are cosmetic, but that doesn't mean they aren't part of the fun of the game- furthermore, it was very obvious in the first page or two that range was in it just for the fun aspect of a knuckler.
Why can't we all just be friends?
PS- why does MikeT get such a bad wrap? he has promptly and thoroughly answer a few of my noob questions on this forum without being the prickly mean guy every makes him out to be.
Just some musings from a forum new guy...
You may (or may not) have noticed that ranger went back and removed his original post that started this thread.
As I remember, it was pretty clear that he was NOT asking for fun, that he believed that the names of pitches had relevance. It was only after he changed his tune and tried to sell the idea that he was asking only for "fun" that he want back and removed the original post, because it didn't "fit" the new story.
And, as Mike as pointed out, ranger is a bit of an *** in the forums, giving out bad advice in the forums. I'm not sure if he's doing that on purpose, or if he really believes what he posts.
Based on "true knuckballer", I think he really believes it.
