    "...a bang-bang play."

    That's all I could think of, however, the next time I hear Charlie Steiner, I'll be back with about 50.

    Another one I hate is when they say the pitcher "jammed" him.

    I think this one's limited to Joe Buck, but he literally could NOT refrain from describing Olmedo Saenz as "The DANGEROUS Olmedo Saenz!" over and over and over during the 2007 NLDS. Nobody else was described as such, not even Carlos Delgado (who tore up Dodger pitching) or a genuinely "dangerous" Dodgers slugger like Jeff Kent. I thought it to be utterly ridiculous.

    Motafy (MO-ta-fy) vt. -fied, -fying 1. For a pitcher to melt down in a big game situation; to become like Guillermo Mota. 2. The transformation of a good pitcher into one of Guillermo Mota's caliber.

    Yes, this is a REALLY bad call! Very obnoxious and completely in-your-face rhetoric. I have to believe there are many Yankee fans who dislike it and are embarrassed by it. At least, I would hope so! I know that if the Dodgers had an announcer who said this after every win, I would be embarrassed for him. I truly would. I get the concept of homerism and the fact that announcers are not merely objective observers devoid of partisan emotion, but yech. This call is horrific.

    Imagine if the famous call of Russ Hodges had been repeated by him after every Giants victory. Wouldn't you be a bit embarrassed as a fan to hear, "The Giants win the game! The Giants win the game! The Giants win the Game!" every time they won? Hodges' call was a spontaneous outburst of excitement following an incredible end to an incredible game, so one can forgive, and even embrace, the enthusiasm. But the call that Yankee announcer (whoever he is) makes after each Yankee win is one that a broadcaster would make after an amazing or unforgettable victory, NOT after every win during the season.

    Or does he do it every game? I'm under the impression he does. If so, I find it pretty pathetic.

    A "professional hitter" is a guy who hits .280-.300 but doesn't draw any walks and has mediocre power. Freddy Sanchez is the quintessential "professional hitter". He's a career .297 hitter but has a career 98 OPS+. People think he was good hitter because he hit over .300 often (even won a batting title once) but his career high in walks is 32 and he hit double digit home runs just once (11 HRs). Giants GM Brian Sabean loves to sign "professional hitters" like they are going out of style. The only thing worse than Sabean signing a "professional hitter" is when he signs a "gamer"!

    That's not a cliche, that's a description of an inning.

    Yeah, but is it a cliche?
