An outing in which a starting pitcher is plagued by errors and unearned runs, which lead to uneven ratios.

The errors don't hurt the ERA but they definitely hurt the WHIP looking at a 6 inning, 1.50 ERA, 2.50 WHIP

Nice. Can also be used as a verb - I went with Ponson for a spot start and he got WHIPped!

Good stuff Ryan Braun!

How about "Tied to the WHIPing post" - When a pitcher posts (get it?) an outing which is plagued by errors and unearned runs - leading to uneven ratios.

"Man! Ponson tied me to the WHIPing post last night. 1.50 ERA but 2.50 WHIP! Why is Jeter still playing shortstop?"

Ha!

If they ever slot in Braun at 3rd again, chances are all Brewers starters will tie you to the WHIPping post.

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.

TIED! How in the world did I miss that.

Yes - I meant "tied to the WHIPing post".
