You can look at it however you want to. But the facts are that there are 14 weeks before the All-Star break. If you're in a 19 or 20-week league (mine's 19), then 14 weeks is at least
70% of your season. That is an unacceptable amount of time to have a player playing below his capabilities. Especially, if you're planning on using a 3rd-round pick on him.
With that said, I will freely admit that Huff had a tremendous first half in 2003. If he does go in the 3rd round, I hope he is able to duplicate 2003. Otherwise, he's a bad pick in the third round.
As for cromulence (my spelling was incorrect), I cannot believe that we are both
references that neither of us have heard of. Burns said crapulence, huh?
Cromulence - From Lisa the Iconoclast
KRABAPPEL: "Embiggen? I'd never heard that word before I moved to springfield."
HOOVER: "I can't see why not. it's a perfectly cromulent word."
They made up a word to describe a word that they also made up. It's genious. In fact, cromulent has attained a definition in some ranks.
answers.com wrote:Cromulent is a word used by the schoolteacher, Miss Hoover, in an episode of The Simpsons, in which she defended one made-up word by making up another: "It's a perfectly cromulent word." Since it is used in an ironical sense to mean legitimate, in reality, it is spurious and not at all legitimate. The user assumes common knowledge of the inherent "Simpsons" reference. It has come to be used with tongue in cheek, or with the intent to insult high talkers, English majors and otherwise insufferable people who feel the need to correct others.
