Yep. No breaking pitches of any sort, but without air resistance, you could throw a heck of a heater.

Why so many posts with this guy`s tweets? Anyone could have written that. He`s a very intelligent man, but come on..

Well a twitter account is basically brain farts put to 150 or less characters, so I`d say he`s using it fairly well. The people you should be angry at are the ones who constantly spread all his tweets everywhere and all the people asking him for interviews.

I`m prepared to risk it, provided NDT is the guinea pig we send up.

this guy is really getting on my nerves. what bothers me the most is that the IAB mods really think he is god, and whatever he says is some sort of treasured pearl of wisdom that the whole world MUST hear.

"It would`ve been better to say `and you wouldn`t miss curve balls`".

No. That`s much much worse.

Also what`s with all the baseball science hypotheticals recently.

Plus, even a bunt would probably be a homerun.

@darkmagic14n - I think he just assumes people know that a curve ball curves by interacting with the air. With no air to interact with, no curve balls.

if this is REALLY deGrasse talking, he needs to learn how to convey a point better.

he does not make it clear if you will get nothing but curve balls or if you will not have any curve balls, you really do have to dumb it down when you`re talking about physics in space because not many people ever think about thinks like that.

it would`ve been better to say, "and you wouldn`t miss curve balls."

I went and checked the twitter feed, and it is indeed him, deGrasse Y U no speek gud?
