Baseball expressions you hate!

21 posts in this topic

Are there any expressions in baseball or fantasy baseball that just drive you nuts?

 

The one that I keep hearing or seeing is, "the ball just sounds different off his bat". It's like, it's not enough to say this person has potential or looks like a great hitter. We have to add that extra thing in.

 

Sorry if this is in the wrong thread or just dumb.

'we are going to be extra cautious.' When trying to figure out when a player will be due back.

I personally find referring to players as "studs", "beasts", "sleepers" or "professional hitters" to be deeply annoying. I also don't care for the cliche "the kid can rake". Fantasy baseballers use the term regression incorrectly, let's say, 75% of the time. Is there a more useless expression than "prospect" these days? 

Yes, I'm an insufferable particularist.

My pet peeve has got to be "the Red Sox walk-off with a win." Nobody knows that walk-off meant the losing team walked off the field and refused to complete the last inning, since baseball used to finish the 9th inning even if the outcome was determined back in the early days. You ever see the winning team walk anywhere? It should be the Athletics walk off with a loss.

A friend of mine deepy, deeply, DEEPLY hates the White Sox play-by-play guy who says "he gone" when one of their pitchers strikes a guy out. I gotta admit, it is pretty annoying.

Not really an expression, but a pet peeve of mine is, for example, player A is on base and gets out for some dumb mistake (baserunning  mistake or whatever) and player B, who is batting, hits a home run a few pitches later...everybody is like "THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A 2 RUN DINGER!!!"...because player B would have received the exact sequence of pitches if player A had never been removed from the base paths :rolleyes:

Always thought "tater" sounded incredibly stupid.

in fantasy articles, I abhor the "triple slash" phrase. First of all, there's 2 slashes, not 3. Secondly, it's just stupid.
