Wes Welker, Chad Ochocinco Might Be Only Ones Able to Catch Tim Wakefield’s Knuckleball


Tim Wakefield's knuckleball was moving on Sunday. A lot. And that isn't always a good thing.

Wakefield threw two wild pitches and Jarrod Saltalamacchia had three passed balls on a windy day in Boston that is putting the Red Sox at risk of seeing their wild card lead dwindle even more.

NESN Nation's Nate Hinchey is looking forward to the big Patriots-Chargers clash on tap for Sunday afternoon and was wondering if any Patriots players might have been able to help out during the matinee Sox game. After all, there are some pretty skilled guys on that squad. Wouldn't they be able to help catch a knuckleball?

We asked our fans on Facebook and Twitter who on the Patriots they thought would make a good knuckleball catcher in the tradition of Doug Mirabelli. Check out their answers in the video and leave your ideas in the comments below.
