Kendrickian: Nationals at Phillies Game Thread, June 19, 2013

Let us redefine this word.

Mike McGinnis

Kyle Kendrick has had quite the turnaround, from annoying, inconsistent also-ran to mid-rotation guy we all tolerate. So this word, kendrickian, should be redefined in kind. No longer should it mean "sucking at your job despite being paid a lot of money" or "ruining something beyond all recognition" or "giving up two home runs to elderly, grizzled Jason Giambi". No. Not now, not anymore. Now, it shall mean "career changing turnaround", or alternately "doing OK but secretly waiting for the other shoe to drop."

Someone alert Merriam-Webster and Funk & Wagnalls. Posthaste! The aforementioned Kendrick will face Gio Gonzalez tonight in the final game of this series with the Nationals.

What do you think kendrickian should mean? Discuss that and the game in the comments below.
