Fangraphs: The Knuckleball Is More Conventional Than It Seems

Eno Sarris questioning conventional wisdom about the knuckleball:

But once you peal (sic) back the layers on the pitch, you start to see that each truism about the knuckler isn’t necessarily true. In fact, there are probably more ways in which the art of throwing a knuckleball is similar to the art of throwing other pitches than it is different.

(I know a Steven Wright article just got posted. I think the more general discussion of knuckleballs here deserves its own thread.)
