Substitute for Slam and Legs

Postby Frank Rizzo » Tue Apr 19, 2011 12:37 pm

I've got a guy in my league who has labelled a player with a HR and a SB in one game Highway Head. He says there is nothing better than Highway Head, and there is nothing better in fantasy baseball than HR's and SB's in one game.

I don't agree.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Where did Slam and Legs come from anyway? For awhile I had it messed up and kept thinking of it as (S)Mash and Dash.

Slam and legs derives from the Middle English dialect, Idon'tknow-ium.

Ham and eggs are delicious for breakfast, slam and legs are delicious for fantasy.
I like sports with balls in them.

Aha, that's the kind of explanation I was hoping for.

So, the other day, after reading Grey's round-up, I was thinking about the term "slam-and-legs" and I pondered: what if your guy actually hits a grand slam and steals a base or two --> that's literally a "slam and legs," but wouldn't we need a catchy, Razzball-ish term for literally hitting a slam and getting the SB?

I don't know, Grand Slam and Legs seems pretty apropos. Plus I got to say "apropos".

Plus, you get a double word score for the Denny's reference (or does that undermine the whole affair?)
