I think I've found a variation on Sonovabench that needs it's own name. I'm watching Colorado score at will today, and CarGo isn't in the game because of a routine day off. Holy Sit!!

What do you think of a term for guys like Reynolds and Pena, who really have only two possible outcomes from an at-bat? K-Boom! (As in "My team needs power so I'm thinking of adding Branyan, but he's such a K-Boom...")

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.

A holy sit can lead to a sonofapinched!. When your player didn't get the start so you bench him, but hen he hits a pinch hit home run later in the game. (slightly different than sonofabenched)

I just returned from vacation and discovered that I've been immortalized in the Razzball Glossary! I'm somebody now! Millions of people look at this (site) everyday! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity - your name in print - that makes people. I'm in print! Things are going to start happening to me now...

I don't know if this is glossary worthy, but every time a strikeout guy like BJ Upton actually avoids striking out and miraculously gets a walk, I really do say "John 5:18". I always get a kick out of it, but then I'm a guy who watches baseball alone and makes obscure comments to himself.

(This originally occurred to me when I noticed the different translations. "Pick up your bed and walk" vs. Pick up your mat and walk". I think "Bat" is the correct interpretation.)

That's hilarious, but I don't think it's gonna make its way to the glossary.
