What the heck is The Eck talking about? | Boston.com

Red Sox broadcast need more Eck.

“JOHNSON’’

Ecksplanation: An important home run, but not a grand slam.

Proper use in a sentence: “Ortiz has to be the Red Sox’ all-time leader in Johnsons.’’

WaPo - Baseball Cliches Categorized

In transcripts of those interviews, we found roughly 20,000 phrases (and their variations) that occurred over and over (including “over and over,” which showed up 113 times). We eliminated normal baseball terminology, then took a look at what we had. Here’s what came up big.

Statistics on the frequency of baseball clichés. This could be fun.
