Ryan Franklin

I read the M's pitching coach won't let him throw the knuckler in a MLB game. Does anyone know why? As bad as he's been this year, it couldn't hurt, and might reinvent his game. As an M's fan this season is starting to hurt REAL bad, and it'd be nice to see a good knuckler on the team. Also, if it works out, it might allow for some extra innings. Has anyone seen him throw the thing? Supposedly it's pretty good, but I've never seen video of it.

A couple quotes

"Franklin throws five different pitches (fastball, curve, slider, change, forkball) and says he'd love to throw his sixth -- a knuckler -- if only the Mariners would let him. "

from http://www.strikethree.com/01/06/05/jason.shtml.


"He's working on a knuckler that I told him he can use on his 40th birthday." - quoted by Price himself

http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/sports/mariners/preview/2004/franklin.html

I read another quote flat out saying Price wouldn't let him throw the thing, but can't figure out where I found this. What a sham!

yea he does but brian price wont let him throw it. They way he is been throwing they need to let him try it at least. I saw him throw it at Spring Traing and i think i saw him throw it a couple times when he was in the bullpen before a game.
