Over the course of a season, the Grantland staff pumps out a whole bunch of words about baseball. Some of them are analytical. Others could be loosely defined as inside jokes. A few are Montreal Expos–related (guilty!). Many are Simpsons-related.
In light of that, we figured it’d be wise to create a Grantland Baseball Dictionary. Think of this as a reference guide, one you can click on anytime Rany goes on a Darryl Motley rant, Charlie rhapsodizes about Dewey Evans, Shane shakes his fist at Vernon Wells, Baumann waxes poetic on Erik Kratz, or I do … whatever it is I do. It will also cover various baseball sayings and memes, old and new.
