Hey Grey. Just came up with this one today as I was looking for a starter off waivers. (I actually picked up Correia, per your advice, but I thought it was funnier using those other names.)

Schmo-brained – The state of one’s mind after hourlessly sorting through stats when trying to find the best option between schmohawks on the free agent list.

“In need of a pitcher, I spent 45 minutes comparing every split possible between J.A. Happ and Paul Maholm. The stats actually regressed my decision-making and I wound up so schmo-brained from looking at numbers like .308/.808 vs. righties that I finally just flipped a coin and tails told me to grab Maholm.”
10-Team H2H 8x8

C: Binge
1B: Morneau
2B: Phillips
3B: Reynolds
SS: Bartlett
MI: Uggla
CI: Loney
OF: Manny, Abreu, J-Upton, Cruz, Victorino
UTIL: Rolen
BE: Hudson
DL: J Reyes

SPs: Sabathia, Josh Johnson, Gallardo, Cain, Oswalt, Joba, Jobacum, Jurrjens
RPs: Bell, Fuentes, Gonzalez

Ha, that's pretty good. I'll make sure Rudy sees it.

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.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.

Hmm, not loving the term. Feels too generic. Doesn't encapsulate that brainlock you get from analyzing the undifferentiated mediocrity of free agent wires

Something like Analysis Paralysis but more baseball-y...
