Jiggin Matt, I think the average fastball in the major leagues is around 88mph. I think Dickey throws his fastball about 82mph and his knuckle ball is somewhere in the 70's.

Who is talking about his 92 mph knuckle ball? I have not heard Richard or bert say that. Maybe Gladden or Gordon was drunk on the radio one afternoon and said that by mistake.

Crappies, do you watch the games? They are talking about his 92 mph knuckleball. They talk about how he is the only knuckleballer to throw it that hard.

do i watch the games? yes. every one on TV. a knuckleball cannot travel 92mph. knuckleballs travel between 55-75. wakefields sits in the first part of that range. there are only 2 pitchers that utilize the pitch in the bigs. 72, yes. 92........silly.

i just generally check this part of the board out quick after fishing reports. i am one of the moderators on the most active twins forum on the net, i just check all of them to scan for anything worth passing along.

Saying Dickey should get a start over Baker/Liriano (young players with huge upside who have been pitching well as of late) should get on Common Man's "Most Preposterous Statements of 2009"

Dickey has been a pleasant surprise but would you really take the sample size over his career numbers? He is almost 35 and this is the first time in his career his ERA has been under 5.2...(and its been half a season) 5.27 career. thats more than 1 run per 2 innings for those not wanting to do quick math.

I wish him the best and hope he keeps it up, but some of the suggestions here are more than a little silly.

Someone thought he could start................. 6-0!!

Also said several times he could be a starter. Our set up guy at that time was Guerrier or Crain and both were horrible at the time. Dickey was getting put in games when we were down and was put in for rightie/lefty match ups. Dudes better than that

    • I have the Helix 7 Ice and there is no way you could pry that from my hands for a noisy spinning round dial thing. ( I was going to type flasher but I know what types of snarky GIF's would have been posted in reply to that. 
    • I’m glad Lavine is gone! With him on the team, wolves would’ve been in last place last year. He is NOT a winner! Chicago sucked last year! They suck this year! And they’re going to suck next year! I think Jimmy Butler would have stayed if we would have shipped off Wiggins. If anything, this trade should help reduce minutes for KAT and Gibson in a positive way.
    • Well, I’m only about 5 minutes into the next show, and I already know the older Judith will be more annoying than Carl was. Yep, show is back in the pits!
    • I think the trade sucks if they actually had the Heat's offer of Josh Richardson and a 1st round pick plus another player...even Richardson and the first round pick would be better then Saric, Covington, and a 2022 2nd!  Maybe I am off on this (Saric and Covington aren't the worst return) but looking back I wish they had stuck with Lavine, Markinen, and Dunn!  Oh well glad to put this behind us and start the healing process!!  hope Butler brings the 76ers and their "Process" down!! 😂  Go Wolves!!
    • My son was able to gain access by connecting it to his desktop. It required 12v power to drive it. Thanks.
    • UFFDA dats close!!!!!!!!!! we are close to the spring lake store iffin you go that way much!!!!!!
    • Not much to complain about so far, must be why its so quiet in here. From the games I am seeing we don't even look all that great yet but are finding ways to win and Dubs/parise/granlund have been amazing. Will need some depth to kick in to be any kind of real contender, and of course we need to find a way to actually score goals if we make the playoffs, it seems that is always the issue. 
    • Right there by Riley's.  Hopefully they stay locked up and the wind and temps behave.
    • well, it is a what have you done lately society, soooooooooo........... nope........my neck is fine!!!!!!!!!!! i may need to get it massaged by some of those new female hunter trainee's however!!!!!!!!😉  
    • For reference I do have the original Helix 5 and its just the basic unit so newer units may be better with interference.
