The Reds faced the knuckleballing R.A. Dickey for the first time last July. Last year's edition had some success: eight hits (BP and Bruce both doubled), but 7 Ks in 6.2 innings. Ryan Ludwick and Wilson Valdez are the only Reds with more than 5 PAs against Dickey. Ludwick is the most successful, with a home run and a single in 6 ABs.

Before last year (as far as I could tell), the last knuckleball specialist to face the Reds was the now-retired Tim Wakefield. Miguel Cairo is the only Red to see him more than 4 times. Old Giza is .269/.345/.308 lifetime against Wake.

With the possible exception of Cairo, we really have no idea how the Reds handle the knuckleball, but you know without looking that Ludwick will be in the lineup.
