Didn't he just start throwing it recently?

In my book, Crede has 2 less home runs than his statistics show, 4 less RBI, and one less walk (the one where he pinch hit for Uribe after coming in with a 3-0 count and taking one pitch).

I thought he started throwing it at the end of his tenure in Texas.

Yep.

Decided to use it almost exclusively to begin 2006, gave up six homers in his first start, and was sent down to AAA.

Jays have been bringing prospects through the system to no avail for quite some time, looks like they got tired of it.

Takes notes, Kansas City. THIS is how you go for it all.

Yes. Exactly why many would like to see Chris Sale develop more offspeed weapons. With his sidearm style the knuckle-curve would be a good and devastating pitch. Would be cool if could get some consult with retired Burt Hooten who had like a 30 win season with that pitch. Thats what RA Dickey really signifies for the White Sox.

I'm going to think that you exaggerated a bit there. Hooton certainly was a solid SP for the Dodgers from 1975-81. Another guy who blossomed when he left the Cubs, and yes that knuckle curve was at times pretty unhittable.

The most wins Hooten ever had in a season was 19.

OK I stand corrected. I guess one season Hooton got off to a great start and was slated to win 30 but ended up with 19. Still a hella pitch the knucklecurve and Sale is just the man to learn it.
