New term with walks?

Postby Jeagle » Wed Apr 28, 2010 6:08 pm

so after owning Dunn, Abreu and now Wright this year in a few league sit seems like they constantly going O-fer with a few walks giving me no benefit at all. I was thinking of maybe a term where your guy gets no positive stats and walks 3 times in a game making me curse their name as i read it in the box score.

Any thoughts I've been trying to think of something but no luck so far

Maybe they're "Geek Chic" because baseball stat guys love walks.

Maybe "No For's."

Hmm... I'll run it by Rudy, see if he has any ideas.

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 feel like the term "wearing the collar" or "collar" has to be used somewhere here, considering taking the collar means getting no hits.

Ideas:

collar my jive
collar don't match the cuffs
collarblind

C- Norris
1b- Encarnacion
2b- Altuve
3b- Donaldson
SS- Crawford
CI- Belt

OF- M Brantley
OF- J Pederson
OF- J Marisnick
U- K Bryant

P- F Hernandez
P- J Zimmermann
P- J DeGrom
P- Quintana
P- Buchholz
P- S Greene
P- Chapman
P- Gregerson
P- AJ Ramos

Bench

i can definitely see how its not easy to use, but i'm starting to talk myself into the collar don't match the cuffs.

david wright was 0-1 with 3 walks, or better known as a collar don't match the cuffs night.

he may have sucked balls for your fantasy team tonight=collar

but at least he kept some innings going by reaching base and helping his team win the game=cuffs

but hey, your the boss.

OR

wright collared my jive by being praised by jerry manuel for his 3 walk night, but pissed in my oatmeal because he didn't help my fantasy team.

Well, cuffs could also be confused with handcuffs as in every MR on the Pirates and Brewers.

I was thinking of doing something along the lines of the golden sombrero, horn, or other terms when you go O fer while striking out

Like wright went 0-1 with 4 walks and gave my team a nice bronze sombrero..
