The Bad: He's a knuckleballer. He turned into primarily a knuckleball pitcher in 2005. His lowest ERA prior to 2010 was 2009 with the Twins where he was mainly a reliever, appearing in 35 games and had a 4.62 ERA. He was born without an Ulnar Collateral Ligament (the ligament replaced in Tommy John Surgery).
Video: This is taken from behind home plate, and the last pitch is the slowest of the knuckleballs.

3rd base view:
He was the most fun I had watching a pitcher throw a bullpen during all of spring training, as it is such an unusual sight.
Role: 35 starts, 14-10, 220 innings (would be top 15 in baseball), 3.50 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, 120 Ks, 45 Walks.
