Time to make up weird scoring categories

Postby johnsamo » Tue Jun 27, 2006 5:00 pm

+ 5 points for GDOFFOCG - "Getting David Ortiz for the final out in a close game"

-5 "LDOHWOH" - "Letting David Ortiz hit a walk off homer"

The walk doesn't count if it's David Ortiz in the 9th and a homer by him can win the game.

a minus 50 points for a FUIP.... F*#ked up intentional pitch... See Miggy Cabrera's hit last week or the once a decade passed ball on an intentional pitch that scores a guy from 3rd.

Not really fair since it'd be only a NL stat, but there should be a negative point for WTP.... Walking the pitcher.

+1 for ESPNPOD - making ESPN's top 5 plays of the day.

-1 - ARODHMH - A-Rod hits meaningless homer in an already Yankee blowout

-1 ABS - Arrested for being stupid (covers most anything)

-5 BRS - Being really stupid, like tossing lit firecrackers at kids, hitting a running hot dog with your bat during the 7th inning hot dog race, Throwing your bat at an umpire, not hitting a guy when Ozzie Guillen tells you to, that kind of thing... aka "pulling a Dimitri"

-10 ABW - Arrested for beating wife or girlfriend.

-20 WABY - Wife arrested for beating you - AKA "a Finley"

-100 - SURST - "Showing up ripped for spring training" with 20 or more pounds of muscle you didn't have last season

+50 DBCZW - for any reliever that doesn't blow Carlos Zambrano's win

+1 CTM - charging the mound... I'm tired of pitchers having to do the retaliating. Extra point if you do it after you've walked to first base or after the inning.

-10 - HOM - In an all out team brawl, hitting or throwing to the ground a couch over the age of 70.... AKA... "a Pedro"

-10 - CMHB - Chin music hit batter - i.e. hitting a batter above the shoulders.

+10 FGOW - Fake getting out of the way - Getting hit by pinch that wasn't really far off the plate but making it look like you tried to get out of the way.

+20 GHBPI - Getting hit by a pitch that would not have hit you had you just stood there, but in pretending to back out, you actually manage to move closer to the plate and get hit by it.

+20 - FHBP - Fooling the umpire that a pitch hit you when it didn't.

+10 HTP - when a catcher moves the glove slightly after the catch and fools the ump into calling a ball a strike.
