Lol, JPA would have like 10 passed balls a game if he caught for Dickey.
It's Nickeas behind the plate there.
Thole is the one in the Garrett Jones gif.
...but Dickey may throw that change up about once a game if that.
Is mostly KB's and fastballs.
Here is an article written earlier this year regarding his success and how he was doing it.
2 guys on my beer league team used to throw them with a softball when we were warming up. The movement was crazy. Can't even imagine what an all world big league one looks like coming in at 3 times the speed.
Wow, that's just nasty.
I couldn't catch it in the slow-mo gif, imagine trying to hit/catch it at 80mph - glad our hitters don't have to face him!
