Dempster Diving

Postby Terrence Mann » Wed Mar 31, 2010 11:47 pm

Searching the already vultured waiver wire for a rotation worthy starter. I see a lot of the following here:

"Grey, now that Strasburg got sent down I need to pick up another arm. The best guys out there are Millwood, Meche, and Porcello. Who do I pick up?"

That is Dempster Diving.

BTW, I used the search function to make sure you didn't create this term in the summer of 2008. Kinda surprised it wasn't already there. :shock:

We've used Dempster dive before, not sure if we used the gerund. I'm kinda eh on this term, but I'll see that Rudy sees it and he can over rule me if he likes.

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.

I'll just have to work that much harder to get a term into the glossary.

I knew Dempster Diving had to be used here at some point.

Yeah, Rudy also mentioned how Dempster hasn't been that bad recently.

That's why I was guessing it would have been a 2008 term. That season, he would have been a nice pickup out of the garbage heap of leftover starting pitchers.
