Kind of makes you wonder why no guy with a 90mph fastball has developed a good knuckleball before. When you can throw heat, and mix in two different speeds of knucklers, hitters have almost no chance.
The knuckleball is incredibly hard to throw. It took Dickey years to perfect it.
Knuckleballers may have the ability to throw 90 mph, but don't because they throw the fastball like a knuckleball, and can't generate speed enough speed.
