[quote]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! [/quote]
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.
