Longshit: When a star fantasy baseball player is sitting on the disabled list teasing you to pick him up. Just like a very long dump, it's a longshot or longshit if you will that his ass won't be of any use to you the rest of the season. You pick him up anyway and sit there constipated with him clogging up your DL slot. Ex. I just took a longshit with Gallardo.

I actually did just pick up Gallardo because I had the DL space. I don't know about longshit, though. Isn't that what had Kaz Matsui on the DL early in the season?

I like it, Iowa. We'll let Rudy look at it.

I just took a giant longshit on Carpenter and he returns for 1 and a 1/2 starts?!

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.

Eh, just heard from Rudy. He wasn't feeling it, Iowa. Oh, well.

What score did the French judge give it?

I think it's clever but isn't "flyer" all ready an accepted term? Admittedly not as funny.

I think the issue is in the use. Longshit doesn't speak to DL. It sounds closer to a player you hold on too long hoping they come around. Like...

I took a longshit on Khalil Greene and my team still reeks from it.

But, Iowa, keep your head up. You've had some good ones in the past.

EDIT: Iowa, Maybe you add a "Cubs Win" sign to the moon landing or something to take your mind off of it.
