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.’’

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