This is the time of year when baseball trade talk is all the rage. Where will Matt Garza go? Is Jake Peavy staying or will he be traded?
Most trades wind up uneventful or as someone said, "It all comes out when you wash the uniforms." But there have been a couple of deals through the years that were steals for some teams and big-time blunders for the others.
There are two such deals that stand out above all others.

The words and phrases are spoken and written day after day, year after year - generally without any wonderment as to how they became part of the language. All have a history, a story. For those of you who liked Part I, Part II, Part III, X, XV and all the others and wanted more, here is more, just a sampling. As always, reactions and suggestions always welcome. And bear in mind - - this is by no means a complete list.

Last time I ventured out to the ballpark in Arlington it was early summer of 2005 and the Texas Rangers were hosting the Atlanta Braves for an interleague showdown. The stadium was half full at best and although it was a pretty competitive game only about half of those fans remained to see the end.
