This guy's a MENCH

Picked him up on half of my teams tonight. He won't be around on waivers much longer.

I'm not exactly sure what the definition of 'mench' is, but you must be in relatively shallow leagues. I haven't seen this guy on the waiver wire since last year. He's having a nice year, and it should continue. Good pickup! ;-D

Picked up mench tonight to play in place of bradley because he was hurt. I liked the matchups this week.

Payed off well =)

Does he play every day? He has similar stats to several guys on my WW in a 10 team league. I am looking for another OF, and I actually had this guy on my team at one time.

I'm just not sure he's good enough to get a spot for a 10 teamer. :-S

mensch

Mensch (Yiddish מענטש; also mentsch, mentsh, mensh, or mench) is a German noun meaning a "human".

In Yiddish (from which the word has migrated into American English), mensch roughly means "a good person". A mensch is a particularly good person, like "a stand-up guy," a person with the qualities one would hope for in a dear friend or trusted colleague.

Wonderfull post ELSolly. It made me feel good all over. I'm a protestant living in NYC. The term mensch when used in conversation allways reminds one of human endearment.

Good post! Did you pull this off an internet site? If so, what is the site? I'm interested in this kind of thing. If not, its even more impressive.
