Seen in a pitcher's scouting report:

"He will probably never be a dominant pitcher, but could be solid no. 4 or even no. 3 guy on the staff."

Suggested rewrite:

"He will probably never be a dominant pitcher, but could be a solid no. 4 or even a no. 3 guy on the staff."

Often seen in the "pregame play by play" The Braves is 24-12 coming into this game. Should be The Braves are 24-12....

BILLINGS - Eden Blancowas in
a groove, and the results spoke for themselves. He
powered Toledo to a 7-1 win over Billings by homering
three times. His 1st blast, a solo homerun off Michael
Brunell in the 2nd inning, landed an estimated
403 feet from home plate. A 418 feet drive to left
field marked his 2nd bomb, a two-run homerun off Michael Brunell in the 3rd inning.
In the 9th inning he unloaded a two-run homerun off
Albert Durazo. Eden stroked 3
hits in 5 AB, scoring three times with 5 RBI. In 24
career at bats, he has hit 3 homeruns and collected
5 RBI. On 4/10/2001, Wayne Ahmed was the last player to hit 3 dingers in a single game.

Blancowas = Blanco was

418 feet drive = 418 foot drive

Here's a few from scouting reports -

"Don't count on any fielding awards at left fielder" (or center fielder etc)

"He is one of premiere baserunners in the league" (strictly speaking, "premiere" is the French version of "premier", and while it can be used as an adjective in this manner, "premiere" is more commonly used in English as a verb to describe the first appearance, first performance etc)

"He is destined to be a career minor leaguers at best" (should be minor "leaguer" - singular)

That usage of premiere sounds pretty natural to me. I think it is pretty common in the American vernacular (and I spell it with an "e" at the end). Still It should be "He is one of the premiere baserunners.

JML, actually the "the" was there, my typo on that one. I still disagree with the use of "premiere" instead of "premier", but as you say, it might be standard usage in American "english".

Sorry, I don't mean to be a snooty English major here, but I definitely think "premier" is better than "premiere," as well as being far more standard in American English.

Also, "When David Eckstein comes out of the bullpen, get ready for a wild rollercoaster ride." Roller coaster is two words.

Also, this has been one of my pet peeves for a while now:

"Eckstein chases it, but it's foul by ten feet."

Every game, someone catches a ball that's foul by ten feet. It should be "Eckstein chases it, but it's out of play by ten feet."

or, IMO better still:

"Eckstein gives chase, but it goes out of play."

Most announcers don't know ten feet from three miles.

Seen during a failed sac bunt during play by play commentary:

Gilbreath squares to bunt...
down the third-base line...
Gilbert should make the play...
Gilbert let's it roll into foul ground...

The second word, last sentence should be

The game is terrific ! Let me say that to begin. It is much better than=20
last year's version, which was great in itself. But can I offer a minor=20
complaint [ annoyance ] which I wish you would address in an update. I=20
mentioned this last year as well. In the PBP text, when the following=20
text, or something like it, is displayed - " The Tigers IS 3-0 in their=20
diviision, the Yankees IS 4-2., " could you please correct the grammar ?

The right way to say that is " the Tigers ARE 3-0 in their division, the

Yankees ARE 4-2. " This has slipped by your proof reader for several=20
editions of the game. Its a little thing, I know. But would you please=20
try to correct it in this edition ? I'm no perfectionist but this needs=20
fixing.

Thanks,
Tom Monnat

During play-by-play:

Taveras let's the ump know that he is mad at him...


Second word, second sentence should be:

During play-by-play:

hit hard on the ground between third and short...
it's laced to left field for base-hit.

Suggested rewrite of the 2nd sentence:

it's laced to left field for a base-hit.

Seen in an AA manager's email message:

"Jason Grayson isn't hitting the ball at all at AA !
He has an AVG of .243, so a demotion is
the right choice. He shouldn't be emberassed any more. "

The third-to-last word should be spelled "embarrassed"
