J.A. Happ is an anomaly

I'm left-handed. I write left-handed. But I bat right (poorly), swing a golf club right (also, poorly), play guitar (somewhat better, but overall, poorly) right.

J.A. Happ throws left. But he writes with his right-hand. And does everything else right-handed. You know what that makes him? Weird.

"I don't know why. It's a weird thing. I would think I would at least kick with my left."

"His biggest asset is not only does he have good stuff, he's very deceptive when he throws. He's very, very hard to pick up. He hides the ball really well."
