Lots of great advice given here on a daily basis. Lots of it. Just because of few small pieces of advice may fall short for some folks, doesn't mean they throw the baby out with the bath water. Still plenty of good advice to be gleaned.
I agree with this too!

Yeah that's a semantics deal. They want to define a screwball by it's spin, not it's movement. I have seen and caught balls that do move inside to a RHB thrown by a RHP. If you define that pitch by it's spin, it's not a screwball. If you define it by it's movement, it's a screwball.
OK, so if it's not the spin that makes the ball move then what is it? The pitching coaches on this site really want to know so we can teach it. Dazzle us!

Nobody calls a two seam fastball in baseball a screwball 🤷🏽‍♂️

That's true, but in baseball a curve goes down, slider goes sideways and they don't have a 'drop', it makes no sense to me. However, in baseball it's the spin that makes a ball move, not 'secret sauce'. Unless you're up to speed on SSW.
