Looking at today's ESPN.com scoreboard, I couldn't help but notice this over on the right-hand side, clearly written by an intern copy editor:
"Woodshed" is of course a noun. It can be used as a verb, but not in the manner used on espn.com. As a verb, "to woodshed" is a slang term meaning "to practice a musical instrument assiduously and with a specific goal in mind ("He's woodshedding for next week's show." Since the Dodgers clearly aren't practicing the Giants assiduously--though Wednesday's game indeed looked like batting practice at times--we have no choice but to call out ESPN.com on its improper grammar (and even a slang word, at that). Hrumph.
For those of you able to look past the poor grammar and third-grade humor pun on Cain and Abel (bet no one has used that one before!), you can at least take solace in the fact that the Dodgers have a 60% chance at victory today, scoring 4.3 runs.
