That's what manager John McLaren said after Friday's game when Dickey allowed seven runs in the 1 2/3 innings he pitched.
Dickey talked about the performance afterward, saying that he had a "bad" knuckleball. Just what does that mean? Well, his knuckleball didn't have the late movement it usually does, instead hanging up in the strike zone as it approached the plate.
"I was able to throw a bad knuckleball for strikes and that's a bad combo."
-- R.A. Dickey
