Reverse Sonofabench?

I feel there needs to be a term to describe the action that mostly happens in leagues where you set your line-up once a week, when a stiff like Thome or Hafner hits 2 or 3 homeruns in a weekend on your bench or the waiver wire, convinces you to put him in for the next week, then he lays a 2-for-22 week on you before you can get him out. This happens to me more than I would like to admit.

Smactivated - When one activates someone after a Sonovabench stretch only to get smacked by an awful stretch. Even more painful in weekly leagues. Example: I finally put Lyon on my starting roster because he's the interim closer and he Smactivates me with a 6 run inning!
