That'd be fun.  I'd watch a game to see him.

Well GOBILLS78, the meaning of the word possible doesn't typically need further qualifiers, but I know from many years of reading this board that sometimes the obvious is not so obvious.  Tell you what, for your sake I'll change it back to its original form...

Haha, to clarify, I was just saving the board a click. You didn't have "possible" in your original title. I'm over it. Everything will be OK.

Good for Wakefield making some money off this, but clearly this is a lot of people piggybacking on the success of R.A. Dickey.  And what Dickey's doing is really not as easy as anyone out there is making it to be, despite the lack of stress the pitch places on the arm.  I predict Flutie will look like a clown trying to do this with his little man hands.

Ive faced a knuckleballer before! Its like trying to swat flies! Very tough to hit when the pitcher has it going! They also love when the wind is blowing out it makes the pitches dance more!

This will be fun to watch! Best of luck to all participants! I did hear Rob Johnson was invited but hurt himself opening the invitation....

Flute is on my list, along with Brett Favre, Curt Schilling, Joe Namath, and Dave Matthews - the "you are no longer relevant, so go crawl under a rock and rot away quietly" list.

I can see it already - Flutie makes the team, has a  10.00+ ERA, but wins a few games because the Arizona offense averages 15 runs per Flutie start. Fans think he's great, and credit him for "saving" the Diamondback franchise.

Please tell me that somewhere you have that on VHS and still watch it at least once a year?  The movie looks so ridiculous.

LOL!  And when he isn't giving up runs he is getting bailed out by great defense.  He'll consistently load the bases and then induce a clutch double play.  Of course, probably not, given that the D'Bags have roughly 6 guys with DH bodies and range in an NL lineup.
