    Post your baseball clichés here

    I'll start:

    "He plays the game the right way."

    One near and dear to our hearts:

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    Modern ones that started out as fairly advanced analysis but have been dumbed down so much for the masses that the people who use them usually don't know what they are talking about:

    "Plate Discipline"
    "Strike-outs are just another out"
    "Luck"

    I see what you are doing there, but for those to be clichés they probably need to be housed in a full expression. The middle one is definitely a cliché, since it is a phrase we hear all the time, but the other two are just words without enough context IMO.

    No biggie, just trying to refine what I meant by "cliché" here (and trying to fend off a debate about new stats, which wasn't my goal).

    "See the ball, hit the ball"

    If it were really that simple, wouldn't anyone with good vision be a good hitter?
