Just one more really neat thing on DK's PBC Blog. In the left hand column below the listing of newspapers and other blogs, is a section entitled reference (from todays Q&A in the PG). In that section the last link is for Rob Neyer. In that link are explainations for the following:

Diability lists
Options
Waivers
Designated for assignment
"call up" vs "contract player"
"veteran player"
player to be named later
Rule 5 draft

Earlier I had asked you guys for some help here but now I can easily find the explainations. He does it in semi-understandable language and is a great help if you are like me and have questions about the hows or whys of baseball actions.

Again, the link is as described and would be posted for you but for my ignorance of the how to post links.

If I may, I'd like to add a term to the list above.

Rosterbation.

The definition, I trust, is implicit.

I have a feeling that you'll soon be sorry that you gave me this ability. Thanks again.

"With great power comes great responsibility."

Fortunately, Bucfan has the power of a fatigued gnat, and therefore absolutely no responsibility.

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. If you guys make the mistake of teaching me too much, you'll be sorry. But I am now going to ask for help when I feel like an idiot (yes that's daily)

We need Bassoon back to add his smiley faces and we'd be a complete message board family...

I know school's starting soon, so he's busy, but please come back Bassoon, we miss you!!!
