just named my team this after acquiring timmy in exchange for utley.


lin•ce cum lau•de [linsě kŭm lô'dē]

-noun
a young pitcher who comes into the league with high regards or honors: It sure looks like Strasburg has the chance to become the next lincecum laude.

I love the pronunciation key and part of speech, but I'm on the fence with the term. Will run it by Rudy.

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.

yeah i don't think the definition is quite there either. basically a dominating young arm. maybe a minor league arm that's clearly the "top of his class" and is "graduating" to the majors with immense hype / potential. air quotes optional.

Yeah, Rudy wasn't crazy about it either.

I'm more on board with "Lincecumshot," which would be a pitcher who has enormous hype and promise, but just makes a mess on the mound, i.e. Chris Tillman. But we already have "roofie," so why change that?
