Man, I don't know whether to feel like a winner or loser b/c I didn't get that Magic Wandy is a D&D reference...

Combining D&D + Houston pitcher makes the term a tad incomprehensible to the average fantasy person (granted, razzballers are above average but still...)

Is there something more to the point like...

- Homebody
- House Arrest - as in, that guy is AWFUL on the road...i'm keeping him on 'house arrest'...
- Agorathrowbe - pitcher afraid to pitch away from home

Maybe something that doesn't travel well? Food that spoils? Help me out peeps...

Talked with Grey...we're thinking...

Homebody - Hitter or pitcher who is comfortable at home but is a mess outside it.

Road Scholar - Hitter or pitcher who is brilliant on the road but is a moron at home.

House Arrest - What you do to a player who only succeeds at home - e.g., You have Wandy Rodriguez? You better put his ass on house arrest.

Thoughts?

As per the blog he homeschools opposing hitters.

Away from Minute Maid he is Roadkill, perhaps?

The symmetry of Homeschooling and a Road Scholar is nice.

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.

Are we saying he's good on the road or bad?

The opposite of Wandy would be a Road Scholar. Someone like Adrian Gonzalez (or any Padres hitter) would be a Road Scholar. Wandy is a homeschooler.

I like homebody and road scholar, but home schooled and road scholar really go well together. I wonder if there isn’t a way to work “homeboy” or “homie” in? Like, "Wandy Rodriguez is a bona fide homeboy in Houston but he’ll get his ass hit when he leaves town."
