    Eight years ago, i read this incredible piece in The New Yorker. I'm glad to see that it's available online now. I thought of it when I saw the thread about R.A. Dickey's biography. This is an incredible read. I believe I read it while the Yankees and Sox were embroiled in the 2004 LCS.

    Good stuff. Thanks for sharing. I don't recall the knuckleballer named Zink. Did I miss him? Did he not make it?

      I remember Charlie Zink. He never did much.

        Charlie Zink played in one Major League game. It was eventful, to say the least:
