The NYT and ESPN.com both pipe in today on the “mysterious” gyroball. Something new under the sun? A phantom? Hmmm.
Yawn. Call me when they invent the double-curve.
No, seriously. The hype surrounding this pitch is kind of ridiculous. It’s cool, it really is, but if Daisuke admits to not using it in competition, chances are it isn’t because it’s so powerful that it might kill the catcher. It’s a novelty pitch.
