West Coast Knuckleballs Today

Again it's 'Knuckleball vs. Anibal' as No. 49 Charlie Haeger starts for the Dodgers. He did well in spring training and his AAA catcher from last year will be catching today. Marc Lawrence has already called this game a Dodgers win because of Anibal's troubles and Haeger's spring, even though Manny and Russell won't be starting. One could have hope in the fact that the Marlins have had more recent knuckleball experience than most teams, having faced Tim Wakefield twice this spring. But as A.J. Ellis, who'll be catching for Charlie today, says, "I don't think you ever get used to [the knuckleball]."
