An NL pitcher going to the AL could get "AL CaPwned", if you're into gamer terms and gangsters. Carries sort of a double meaning of getting shot up by the mob and just getting straight up pwned.


I'm not sure it really works, though :/

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.
Thanks!

Maybe for a pitcher that goes to the AL it can be called joining Al Qaeda

Used in the context
"did you hear Vazquez just went to AL Qaeda, now he's gonna be terrorizing my team's whip and era every week."

It did make me smile, but I don't think it's going to work.
