+1 BPO - Balking (Not called) while picking off a runner at first... aka "a Pettite"

+1 HPNBH - Hitting a pitch you have no business hitting - aka "a Vladdy"

+1 PWB - Pitching with balls - Striking out a guy on three straight fastballs down the middle.

-1 SOCTS - Striking out called third strike

-10 SONS - striking out without ever swinging. cummulative with SOCTS

+5 RATO - Rifle arm throw out - A fielder who throws out a base runner who by all rights should've been safe easily. aka: for us old timers "a Dwight Evans" or "a Barfield" Cummulative with ESPNPOD

+10 HFB - Hustling for a free base, i.e. running to first all out on what should be an easy out but being safe because of bad throw or bobble by the first baseman... aka "an Eckstien"

+10 BBDP - Blatantly breaking up double play with slide far out of the base path.

+10 FWP - Getting a pitcher who's been dealing all game so worried about you stealing that he immediately loses focus and blows the game.

+1 TOFT - Taking one for the team - a pitcher that's getting blown out badly in the first or 2nd inning but stays in and pitches 5 to save the bullpen a little. + 10 if you leave the 5th ahead.

-1 FPODA - Fake play of the day attempt - a fielder who unnecessarily makes an easy play look difficult. -20 if you make an error because of this.

+ 10 CMTKP - Convincing Manager(Not pitching coach) (visiting the mound) to keep you in as pitcher

+10 CMTKPPO - When you pull a CMTKP and you get out of the inning without giving up anymore runs.

-20 CMTKPBG - When you pull a CMTKP and blow the game... aka "pull a Grady Little"

+10 for catcher and pitcher when the pitcher gets a win and Neither of them's first language is English and their first languages are different.... AKA... "a Johjima bueno"

"+10 FWP - Getting a pitcher who's been dealing all game so worried about you stealing that he immediately loses focus and blows the game."


I remember when Roger Cedano did that to Roger Clemens in the 2004 NLCS.
I think it was the sole good thing he ever did for us.
(he also managed to be hitting like .550 career against Clemens for whatever reason).

lol, I thought of Edmonds too^^


I think the one for the pitcher that takes a beating should be called "a Marquis"
He has done precisley this in his last two starts.
I guess he isnt well known enough.

Last week our league had a joke b/t the owner who decided to go with "the Marquis experiment" who was playing the owner of Mark Mulder.

ouch!

+ 5 ROSG: Roy Oswalt Started Game...5 points awarded since 100% of the time Brad Lidge or someone else in the bullpen will blow his win for him or his team will only score 1 run against the Pirates therefore giving roy a loss by the score of 2-1 or even 1-0.

-10 ASOWWH Arod strikes out while watching him. Everytime I watch Arod hit he strikes out.


+100 JLWAOTF Jose Lima's Wife Appears on the Field. (Only applicable when owning Jose Lima)

+2 RPWG Two points for every time your Relief Pitcher Wears Glasses
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

HW - +50 when your hottie wife poses for Maxim, +100 for Playboy, you win the league automatically if it's discovered the hottie wife did porn.

"-10 ASOWWH Arod strikes out while watching him. Everytime I watch Arod hit he strikes out."

INAATM- "It's not all about the money" when an impending FA declares that they have no interest in playing for his current club's fiercest rivals, irrespective of cash. +20 pts, aka a "Pettitte."

IRI "It really is," when a player who's performed an INAATM goes back on his word. Also known as... hell, you know. -100.

RSIABO- "Rudy Seanez is a better option." When your middle reliever/setup guy hasn't pitched the day before, but the manager puts in an RP with a 5+ ERA instead of him in a close game anyway. -3pts

ALP- "American League Pitcher." When an NL pitcher gives up a homer to his AL counterpart in an interleague game. -20pts

LVMC "Loses vs Matt Clement." If the opposing starter somehow contrives to take the loss in a game started by Matt Clement. -30

AATR- "Anything against the Royals." 0 points.
