So Dodgers reliever Brian Wilson unfurled like a righteous battle flag the following pitch on Tuesday against the Mariners ...

As the video caption suggests, yeah, that looks, feels and smells like a knuckleball. Nothing like a knuckler as your first pitch of the game to confound the opposing lineup.

Whether this is a new weapon that Wilson is taking for a spring stroll (per Brooks Baseball, he's never thrown a knuckleball) or whether this is merely Brian Wilson behaving in a manner befitting Brian Wilson remains to be seen. However, let us all hope that Brian Wilson will be featuring a knuckler this season, mostly because knuckleballs provide spiritual uplift to all who witness them.
