Own While Hitting suggestion

In response to the Own While Hitting glossary suggestions...this is my first suggestion, so go easy on me!

Poo-Holes - Average players who do their best Pujols impression for a few weeks, but in reality are streaky sonavabenches who remind you why they went undrafted in the first place.

All credit goes to Grey who gave me the idea with his line about how he wanted to make t-shirts that say "I'm a man, and I love Poo-Holes!" for Pujols' 2011 projections.

Hope this helps!

I thought Poo Holes was Pujols old and poor @ss when he doesn't put up a 2/1/5/1 every game and people ask if he is finally done. 5 HRs and 2 weeks into the season: only if you want to trade him to me!

I'm actually surprised you (you = Razzball) didn't just go with OWHN = Own While Hitting Now.

We can do better than that, can't we?

I mentioned this on another post too....

Hitteoroid - A player who is on an amazing streak that will end sooner vs. later with them falling to Earth.

Hitteorite - A player who had an amazing streak but has fallen back to earth with a thud.

Seems to me that Owning While Hitting is akin to either (or both):
- beer-goggles and the fat-chick
- the age-old Moped/fat-chick comparison: fun to ride until your friends see you on one

Perhaps we can work from that!

I think poo holes are pretty well defined already.

I like the latter but the former reminds me of steroids and I get confused and then weep.

I'm probably going to refer to "Own While Hitting" players as Zeppelins because they're fun to ride until they crash and burn.
