I loved the poll on the blog so much that I'd like to suggest that Snausage become a regular term in the Razzball lexicon. Not sure how it would be used yet, but I'm a believer that it could and should.
I think that any player fitting the description of a large, borderline overweight power hitter prospect would be a close definition. I'm thinking Pablo Sandoval, Kila Ka'aihue, or anyone close to the Hector Villanueva mold. Sort of a Bowden Fluffer for fat guys.
UPDATE #1: I just realized that this could technically fall under the "Country Strong" definition. There is some grey area there, and several of these Snausages could fall through the Country Strong cracks, necessitating another entry for big dudes with promise.
UPDATE #2: I can't believe I spent 7 minutes of my life doing this.
